Packing Bags of Essentials

Mon 21 Mar 18:00 pm
St Faith's Community Centre, Red Post Hill, London, SE24 9JQ
for rough sleepers

Get Rid Of And Donate (GROAD) do amazing work making use of unused STUFF, donated to them by the public. We've previously helped them pack Christmas presents and toys for local kids and helped sort and relocate their stock.

Now Andrea has asked if we can give them a hand packing bags of essentials (blankets, clothes and toiletries etc.) for rough sleepers which will then be distributed on the Strand in central London !

The task is at St Faith's Church Hall, near North Dulwich station and we need at least 5 people!

Please bring a mask as the task will be inside 🤿

I Don’t Be-leaf It!!

Tue 14 Dec
Report written by Yianny

Where has the time gone..... It's the last Group Run of 2021 - GoodGym fun - there's no sun - now the year is done. 🤩

Last night got me feeling poetic as 12 Lambeth Legends met at Papa's Park for the last hurrah of the year and a "classic" GoodGym autumn/winter task of clearing leaves at Brixton Road Youth Centre. 🍁

The group were ably led out by Tim who has been a great support while the Area Activator is on the inactive(ator) list and great back marking from Aislin. 💯 Thanks also to Nathan for the photos.

On arrival it was almost as if there weren't that many leaves on the ground to be cleared but the BRYCC team quickly pointed out the piles that had accumulated (or were swept there previously by GG'mers!) along the sides of the centre. The team set about doing what it does and 30 or so minutes later there were 30 full bags of leaves to be disposed of. It was back to base in no time at all for a quick warm down and a chance to admire the AA's stunning Rainbow Laces (click the link to pick up a pair for yourself) before heading to Canova Hall for a festive drink and a chat.

The group took their seats right in front of the kitchen with the pizza oven warming us like a log fire and it was great to get to know people a bit better before Yianny went full geek grabbed his notebook and pen and asked for some suggestions and ideas for the Lambeth Community in 2022. Lots of great ideas were put forward and plenty to go away and work on so watch this space!!

A huge thank you to all the runners, Task Force members, Mission and Taskers for their great work this year - wishing everyone a great end to the year - and a happy and prosperous 2022. 💖

W(h)ATMOre Could We Do?!

Tue 7 Dec
Report written by Yianny

Six brave souls took on the elements to deliver flyers to the Thorlands Estate

There was wind, slick pavements and biting cold but the hardy group of Katie, Adam, Jessie, Lindy, Shauna and Tim set off from base at Papa's Park and made the 1.7km run to Thorlands Estate. Tim led the group out and Katie made sure no-one was left behind and the group made it down in great time to be confronted by the multiple estates of Thorlands.

With door fobs at the ready it was 3-2-1-GO and they were off, splitting each block into floors and racing to get as many flyers through doors as possible. The flyers themselves were advertising all the upcoming events offered by WATMOS to the residents of Thorlands including volunteering and training opportunities - a very worthwhile task indeed!

Incredibly the runners managed well over a hundred flyers in 30 minutes covering most of the blocks on the far side of the estate - what an achievement 💪

Happily no-one was bitten by a letterbox (or a pet) and the group were back at Papa's safely for a bit of fitness (wall-less wall-sits anyone??) and a warm down.

Huge thanks to Katie as well for bringing both vegan and non vegan cookies, a great way to send everyone home at the end. 😍

GoodGym Lambeth End of Year Social & Final Run !!

Tue 14 Dec 18:45 pm
Papa's Park, 10-17 Pulross Road, London, SW9 8AF
Help shape the future of the Lambeth Community for 2022

2021 is coming to an end and it's a busy time for everyone so what better way to end a challenging year than to run with friends and peers who share your values of building and supporting their local community?!

The task for the evening will be a Lambeth classic - collecting leaves for Brixton Road Youth Centre!

This will be the last Group Run of the year for Lambeth and then we will head to a local establishment and take the opportunity to have an open discussion about the future direction of the Lambeth Community, tasks, aspirations of our members and any other topics people would like to raise.

On this front it would be great to have as big a group of runners coming down and giving their views and exchanging with each other!

(For those unable to attend we will have an online get together and continue the discussion there) 🌐

So what are you waiting for? Click the link - get signed up - come run with us - share a festive drink 🎅
