The GoodGymmers of FareShare

Thu 25 Mar
Report written by Shreena Parmar

We put on some steel toe overshoes and got to work. We helped to lift and shift 20 pallets of donated food - each pallet had one type of item on (baked beans, tinned meat, tinned fish, soup, spaghetti hoops, 10kg boxes of pasta, pasta sauce, curry paste, teabags etc) and our job was to put a specified number of cases of those particular items onto empty pallets in order to build up a pallet with mixed food items. The mixed pallets are then distrubuted within FareShare and other charities.

Welcome to Daniel who attended a GoodGym Community Mission for the first time (but has volunteered at FareShare before is was a pro!)

I started to write some lyrics to the tune of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air but I didn't have time to finish it. Here is what I have so far:

Now this is a story all about how, Six volunteers travelled across town , And I’d like to take a minute, Just sit right there, I’ll tell you how we became the GoodGymmers of FareShare

In a big warehouse on Winterstoke Road, We put on our masks and spent half of our day, Lifting, shifting and following rules, Helping a charity that distributes food, We’re just a few guys that like to do good, In our lovely Bristol, our neighbourhood , The Covid rules were strict but we didn’t get scared, Because we are the GoodGymmers of FareShare

Thanks for the great work everyone!
