Flyering rain or shine

Sat 30 Jan
Report written by Ruby Daly

The task was to post flyers through letter boxes in support of local food bank. Happily, of 250 letter boxes, most were at waist level and only about half a dozen were at the foot of the door! A new found respect for postal workers☺️

Christmas isn't cancelled, just different

Mon 21 Dec
Report written by Ruby Daly

Only after signing up for the mission did I realise I was not only out of my GG area but totally out of my comfort zone! At the meet up point we're volunteers from other organisations as well as GoodGym people &I needed not have worried, as the staff compiling the eats welcomed us with smiles and even mini croissants! (see pic*) They gave us the packages and we paired up and were on our way in short order.
I hadn't done this task before so I was paired up with Jo who had and had met some of the recipients in the past. Walking &talking (masks on of course) was great therapy and as we only had 5 deliveries to drop off, it took less than an hour. Must admit if it hadn't been for Jo it would have probably taken me ages - I have a poor sense of direction! * Volunteers in pic not from Good Gym and kindly gave permission to be used in this report.

Food delivery

Mon 21 Dec 11:20 am
Waterhouse Restaurant , 10 Orsman Road, London, N1 5QJ
Come for a walk and talk while helping the community

An amazing new partnership with the Shoreditch Trust!!

We pick up parcels from the Waterhouse Restaurant at 11:20 and route will take around an hour to deliver about 10 parcels. Ruck sacks and panniers would be helpful!

We will be delivering food parcels to members of our community who are seriously ill, recovering from a stroke or usually rely on carers family or friends because they are unable to prepare food themselves. cannot safely visit a food bank because of mobility problems, risks to their health or risks to someone they provide care for. are without friends and family to drop off shopping. are homeless, and living in temporary accommodation with no kitchens, or shared facilities which are unsafe for them to use.

We really need your help to make these deliveries so be great to have you along!! Best ways to get about on the delivery routes will be walking or bikes! Might get a bit messy running!! We will get routes the day before and will pair you up with another GoodGymer or 2.

If you would like to be in pair group with someone in particular let me know at joel@goodgym.org. Once we have pairs sorted I will open up listing to allow groups of 3. If you would prefer to do delivery solo just let me know.

Any problems on the day message me (Joel) on 07895628708.
