Assisting with covid vaccination clinic Saturday 10th 8-12

Sat 10 Apr

Please arrive 30 minutes early for your COVID test

We will be assisting the social prescribing team with the administrative side of the vaccination clinics.

Areas of work:

  • standing outside welcoming & directing patients to the check in desk (WARM CLOTHES NEEDED)
  • helping the waiting area run smoothly - making sure it's first in, first out for vaccinations and that seats are cleaned once vacated
  • assisting patients from the church hall to the surgery (short distance across a car park - another outside job, warm clothes required)
  • 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!

Friday afternoon sort out

Fri 23 Apr 13:00 pm
Naomi House Jack's Place, 75 London Road, Portsmouth, PO2 0LN
Helping Naomi House sort donations

The £1 sale is STILL ON! So Naomi House still need our help sorting through their donations and getting them out into the shop. If it's a cold and rainy day this is the perfect antidote - warmth, good humour and there's quite often a cup of tea too!!

Just the one shade of grey

Fri 9 Apr
Report written by Katie Carew-Robinson

A real task, with real life people inside and not a vaccine in sight... What a treat!!

North End Foodbank is becoming North End Pantry which called for a face lift to the entrance area and the stairs. I wasn't sure we'd get it all done but I forgot about the GoodGym team superpowers and everywhere has had a first coat.

Vicki took a break from painting at home to paint in a church instead and ended up lying on the stairs to paint the skirting. Sarah did the taller jobs and had to get on the step ladder to give the upper walls their paint. India rode her nice new bike to the church and I managed to get paint on me by leaning on a bit of wall I'd already painted (why do I always do this?).

Tonight we learned about India putting her bike in the loft, Vicki's sausage casserole & sloe gin (Judy didn't get ALL the sloes at Great Salterns!) and Sarah's requirements for a partner. We didn't get as far as writing her dating app profile, maybe next time!

A great 'bay' for gardening

Mon 5 Apr
Report written by Rosie Sayers

Easter Monday perfectly celebrated; surrounded by bluebells, white bells, daffodils and tulips! We made use of our work free day continuing the great work already done clearing and tidying The Devonshire Practice garden.

Paul distributed a few tasks between us.

Sarah pruned the bay tree, shaping it beautifully to allow more to be planted underneath.

Tracey continued to tidy up all the debris from around potentially the oldest cherry tree is Portsmouth, which really opened up the space making the garden look even bigger.

Aaron and Rosie cleared rubbish and prickly pyracanthus cuttings disturbing lots of yummy wild garlic smells!

Whilst Paul effortlessly pulled up some plants no longer needed and took to the massive challenge of controlling the ivy on the back wall and keeping the neighbours company, checking they were okay with what he was doing.

We had a short biscuit break, Rosie had bought to celebrate her 100th good dead. Then back to it with more pruning, cutting back, digging and clearing.

We were amazed at how much we managed to achieve together in a few hours, brilliant team work!
