Tonight we packed 38 parcels of food and hygiene supplies and delivered 25 of them on foot around East Oxford.
Peggy was excited to show off her snazzy new jumper, we peered at each other in actual daylight, and although more than 1 of the bag handles didn't survive beyond the car park fortunately all the cheese, greek yoghurt, corned beef, milk, veggies, bread and pasta made it to the 50 recipients in tact. There may have been a couple of head-scratching moments, but nothing we couldn't sort out, and everything got delivered before it was fully dark - an exciting springtime first!
Thank you to those who answered the call for donations and brought along some hygiene supplies to replenish the bare shelves with shower gel, deodorant and sanitary products, as well as other useful and appreciated items (tin openers, chocolate).
...just trying to keep the vaccine winning.
4 of the GoodGym team took the afternoon shift at The Leys Medical Centre, ushering another 500 or so patients through the clinic to get their Oxford- AstraZeneca Covid vaccination. Around 1000 people received their first jab at our centre today.
