Overgrown paths in need of GoodGym power!

Tue 6 Jul 18:15 pm
Transition 2 , Whitaker Centre , Derby , DE23 6AR
Neaten up the grounds and improve access

Learners at our college work really hard to keep the grounds looking beautiful, but there is always so much to do!

The paths around the building needs clearing and the ivy cutting back. These paths provide a fire escape route from the back of the building, so for health and safety this is really important to keep clear. Also the shrubs along the roadside need cutting now as they are encroaching over the public footpath. This will also make it safer for the local community to pass by.

Clearing the paths will make everywhere look nicer and improve access, particularly for our learners who use wheelchairs or walking frames.

FareShare food collection at Derby Mickleover Tesco

Thu 15 Jul 18:00 pm
Tesco Mickleover, Kipling Drive, Mickleover, DE3 9NH
Fighting hunger and tackling food poverty

Sign up to volunteer at Tesco Derby Mickleover, handing out FareShare 'shopping lists' with suggested donations. Customers can then buy items from this list to leave at the in-store food collection at the end of their shop. This food is taken to the nearest FareShare Regional Centre where volunteers sort it to then redistribute it to 3500 charities across the country.

IMPORTANT ADDITiONAL SIGN UP* Please ensure that you are also signed up through the FareShare website and registered for a particular slot. https://fareshare.org.uk/foodcollection

Once on the FareShare website, type in the postcode DE3 9NH and scroll down to see a spreadsheet embedded on the page with shifts available to sign up for. Please check the website is displaying shifts for 'Derby Mickleover' as the store option.

Volunteering can be done from 15-17th July, this Community Mission is for Thursday 15th July from 6-9pm as I felt we would get a good attendance but please feel to look at other volunteering shifts and list them as something you've done as an individual through GoodGym.

This task has been a huge success previously with GoodGym helping FareShare collect thousands of donations in stores up and down the country!

Upon arrival at the store please report to customer services to sign in and collect anything needed for the task.

A baa-rilliant evening run

Tue 8 Jun
Report written by Rachel Carthy

We met outside Jurys Inn which was the previous group run starting point. This was requested by some members for continuity so it'll be great to see lots more members meeting there in the coming months. We are able to use the toilets near reception and store bags at the hotel - please use the NHS test and trace app to check in to the venue if you are entering the building.

A round of applause for Tracy and Fatima who had both actively travelled to the start location - by bike or on foot! We set off for a steady 5k around Darley Park stopping for photo opportunities and to have a nose at some of the food and drink venues that surround the park and to see some of the kayakers practising capsizing...we paused to check they were training and not in any danger! Great to see some areas of the park that weren't known to the whole group.

After a photo opportunity ewe couldn't miss with one of the colourful rams from the Derby Ram Trail, we had a chat about the upcoming Community Mission and said goodbyes.

Fatima is really looking forward to having the support of a group to help her stay motivated to go running on a Tuesday and tonight she covered more distance than she has on any previous runs as she travelled on foot to meet us and then go home.

Well done to Tracy and Fatima for coming along for a humid, solid effort tonight.
