Dial GG!

Tue 20 Apr
Report written by Huw Davies

A mild disaster at the vaccine centre as a number of no shows from the volunteers left them very short for a busy evening shift.

With GG in the area completing the task at St Matthews an emergency call was placed and hey presto, the whole gang came across to help out!

Amazing work guys, thank you so much!

Recycling litter picked aluminium cans for Helipads for Hospitals

Sun 18 Apr

A great new task.

Get out and litter pick some aluminium. Throw in any you've got at home too.

Take them to one of the Big Red Bins (BRBs), crush them (a handy little bicep workout) and deposit for them to be collected and used to build an aluminium helipad at Leicester Royal Infirmary.

The aim is to collect about 80 tonnes of unwanted aluminium (i. e. saucepans and drinks cans) and to use the raw material to form an alloy strong enough to build a helipad on site at hospitals.

The first priority is Leicester Royal Infirmary, where Air Ambulance helicopters currently have to land on Nelson Mandela Park so the patients — often critically ill —have to be transferred to road ambulances and driven to the Accident and Emergency Department, about ¾ of a mile away.

Either sign up to the weekly community mission and share pics of you collecting the cans or log it as your own good deed if you are collecting more than once a week.

Collecting/depositing counts as one good deed. During lockdown please either store the cans at your home or if you live close enough deposit at one of the BRBs.

They are currently located at the Co-ops in Enderby and Barrow-upon-Soar and in Shepshed on Britannia St. More are expected to be added.

Paint it black!

Tue 6 Apr
Report written by Huw Davies

With snow flurrying across Leicestershire during the afternoon this task could have gone very wrong. Luckily for us the sun popped out just before we started and we were able to proceed as planned.

Nick, Ashley and Stu blasted some litter from the vaccine centre car park before joining us.

Mel, Lindsay, Tracey and Stu formed a litter picking squad heading up and down the waterway collecting cans and assorted trash.

Sharon, Jen, Steve, Huw, Dave, Ashley and Nick split into two groups and painted a wonderful 57m section of the sleepers black. 57 down, 243 to go on this section.

We finished up just as the snow returned, perfect timing!

Great work gang.
