Come on Irene

Wed 31 Mar
Report written by Jo Kitching

This was one of 3 group runs we had organised this evening and the first one since early December when we went into another lockdown. Eli, Jo, Rachel, Rosie and Sinéad met at South Parade pier and waited for Lynn to arrive from her shift at the vaccination clinic. Lynn was slightly delayed as they were waiting for some final patients to arrive so we met her on our route. This was Eli’s first time wearing the Goodgym T-shirt for a run and not a community mission so it was great to get it tested. We headed towards Old Portsmouth along the promenade keeping our distance from people walking in the early evening. We saw Lynn near the common and we all ran towards the Garrison church before turning and heading back. A lovely evening and great to be able to meet up with fellow Goodgymers and head out for a run.

Pfizer Fun!

Wed 31 Mar
Report written by Judy Knapp

It was a Pfizer day today, with the older tier groups returning for their second jab.

It meant the car park was busy with drop-offs, taxis and mobility scooters and I had fun directing the traffic again!

It was Chloe's first GoodGym shift, although she has volunteered at the clinic already through Portsmouth Hive. Chloe kept the queue happy with a friendly meet-and-greet and a squirt of hand gel.

Lynn continued the GoodGym high spirits inside, covering the thermometer duties and then logging patients in on the laptop, with plenty of banter with patients and the other volunteers.

Time flew by and it was lovely to finish the shift in BST daylight.

Painting at North End Larder - part 2

Fri 16 Apr 17:00 pm
North End Baptist Church, 195 Powerscourt Road, Portsmouth, PO2 7JH
Get the Larder ready to open.

Painting the hall and stair walls to freshen up the entrance to North End Church.

This is the site of the old foodbank which is converting to a "Larder".

The church has bought some extending paint rollers so there shouldn't be any/too much ladder climbing.

Please bring a face covering as you will be inside.

  • directing patients from the clinic rooms to the post-vaccine waiting area

PPE will be provided if needed. Even the indoor jobs can be a little cold as the doors are open for ventilation so please bring plenty of layers. Tea and coffee is available as well as a supply of biscuits!

All our volunteering will be overseen by social prescribing staff from the You Trust, please report to them if you cannot find your other GoodGym volunteers!
