Sorting clothes for Get Rid Of & Donate

Tue 19 Oct 18:45 pm
Papa's Park, 10-17 Pulross Road, London, SW9 8AF
Packing bags of essentials for rough sleepers

The fab GROAD (Get Rid Of & Donate) do really great work taking people's unused stuff and redistributing to people who need it, such as homeless people and refugees.

They've asked for our help sorting and bagging clothes, blankets and sleeping bags which they then distribute to rough sleepers (look out for a GoodGym Westminster listing on the 26th...)

We'll be inside so please bring a mask if you'd feel more comfortable. And we'll be running about 3km to St Faith's Church Hall, near Herne Hill.


New to GG Lambeth? We're a super friendly group who meet at Papa's Park near Brixton Station at 7pm on Tuesdays. We run to a local organisation, do a physical task for them and run back by 8:30. You can leave things in Papa's Cafe where there's a loo too! Email me if you've got any questions??

Brixton Windmill? Big fan.

Tue 28 Sep
Report written by Mark Gilyead

Ain’t no threat of rain putting off tonight’s do-gooders! (Though the lure of baked goods might have tempted some out…)

We had a lovely bunch tonight, including many a friendly face and a few new ones! Shout out to Chris, Jen, Hannah and Alice for joining their first Lambeth group run! You are so welcome 👍👍


Tonight’s task was at the awesome (and slightly terrifying in such dark conditions - see ghostly pic) Brixton Windmill where we met Jean who gave us a few tasks to be cracking on with:

🌱 Raking up the mown grass for the compost heap

🔪 (closest relevant emoji?) Edging the path to make it look nice

✂️ Trimming back the hedges on the outside fence and putting the branches in a sack


Fake it till you rake it

Although the clumps of grass were a struggle to find and our lights didn’t quite light up the path as desired (according to Chris), in 30 minutes we were done. And we had 2 bags of grass and branches to show for it as well as a neatly edged pathway.

Great work gang! 💥


Cookies and crème de la crème

We then had a brisk run down the hill back to Papa’s. After a quick stretch, Jen brought out the goodies;

Chocolate chip cookies with a dash of salt. A phenomenal start to our Bake-Off Sweet-stakes!!


See you next week for sanding and painting benches at Hillside Gardens and (fingers-crossed) round 2 of bakes! 🍰

Gardening @ Brixton Windmill

Tue 28 Sep 19:00 pm
Papa's Park, 10-17 Pulross Road, London, SW9 8AF
Getting the gardens in shape for a event they have the next day

We're going back to the Windmill! And they have an event on the day after we're visiting so hopefully we can get the park looking nice for new visitors.

There may be some tasks in the Windmill to do but we'll mostly be outside, planting and weeding etc!

Please bring a mask & gardening gloves 🧤🤿🧤

It's a short run but we'll have a longer option if people fancy it!

You say potato, I say potato

Report written by Sophie H

After parkrun I ran over to Ms B's to do some gardening. Ms B has asthma and has injured her shoulders so is unable to keep on top of the weeds, and the garden was getting a bit overgrown. I set to with a trowel and chisel and managed to clear the beds and paving slabs, and even unearthed some potatoes. I bagged up the rubbish ready for Ms B's friend to collect. Ms B was very happy with how the garden was looking, and with the potatoes!
