GG Redbridge xmas dinner

Mon 13 Dec 19:30 pm
Wanstead House Community Association, 21 The Green, London, E11 2NT
Christmas celebrations with the GG Redbridge crew

For our Christmas dinner this year we will be going to Luppolo in Wanstead. This is a delicious pizza restaurant with craft beers, cocktails and non-alcoholic options too. It is just a few minutes walk away from our Wanstead base at the community house and we will have a quick (optional) task beforehand which you can register for separately.

We have a provisional booking but need to confirm numbers by the end of the month, so please sign up by 28th Nov if you want to come. If we are more than 10 we may have to pre-order and pay a small deposit, but I will get in touch after 28th November and give you all the details.

Looking forward to it!

Souper efficient packing - we've never bean so fast! so fast!

Sat 30 Oct
Report written by Jenny McCurry

It was great to see everyone at Frenford on such an awfully rainy morning. Several of the group cycled there despite the terrible weather - kudos to you for that! 👏

With a large group of volunteers and not as many parcels as previously, we got through the packing in record time, finishing up around 10.30. That left plenty of time for tidying, restocking and helping drivers to load cars before finishing up around noon. We even had time for a quick tea break and some Halloween sweet treats.

It was great to meet Nargis on her first task and Val and Yasmine both completed their 5th tasks. Well done everyone, hope you enjoyed the sunshine in the afternoon. 🌞

Wet Wet Wet

Sat 7 Aug
Report written by Linda

Even monsoon type weather won’t keep GoodGym Redbridge away from their regular stint at the Mutual Aid Food Bank. James cycled in and Yasmin tried to run until the rain blocked her sight. Both suffered so much from wet feet that they no choice but to take their shoes and socks off and do the shift barefoot.

First missions can be very daunting so it was great to see that Manjula had not only braved the elements by walking in but also overcame any first time nerves and was soon in the swing of things, along with our relatively newbie AJ they were picking and packing like pros. Welcome to GoodGym Manjula.

The change to earlier time had thrown Dharmesh and Linda out as they had pre-booked an early outdoor swim so they turned up a hour later than the others ironically looking a lot drier than those who hadn’t been swimming in the rain. They both quickly got stuck in with helping out the packers.

As always the organised chaos, rustling, jostling, grafting and generally joking about gradually smoothed it’s self out to neat piles of shopping. Keith and some others assisted with taking shopping out to the cars and we’re rewarded with getting very wet for their trouble. Linda sidled off to help Yasmin break up the boxes in order to stay busy in the dry, while James kept one of the helpers little boy busy by pretending to be shot several times over.

Last but by no means least we couldn’t let this task go by without marking our Peter’s 600th good deed. As usual he had been making himself very useful throughout the session, making sure the packers had everything they needed and packing a couple of batches himself. Always dependable, practical and hardworking (and now pretending to be embarrassed by all the praise) a real asset to GG Redbridge…and sometimes Hackney. Well done Peter.

We've 'bin' and 'bagged' another foodbank mission

Sat 26 Jun
Report written by Jenny McCurry

A beautiful sunny day at Frenford and plenty of work to do as usual. It was great to see Yasmine there for the second time alongside old hands James and Linda. Dharmesh made it a double good deed Saturday by giving a blood donation before the task, great effort!

We've done this task so many times now that the team feels like a well -oiled machine. Parcels were packed, shelves tidied and Scouts donations sorted all before the 2 pm deadline. Linda also convinced me that it was a good idea to jump into the bin to squash some boxes down, always glitz and glamour with Goodgym Redbridge. 🤣

Very well done to the whole team, this task always makes such a difference to people in need. I hope you enjoyed the rest of the super sunny afternoon!
