Open House

Sunday 18th September

Written by Sam Lefevre (he/him)

Sam, GROAD volunteer Bridget and three new volunteers came to set up the Open House tomorrow, but since its the Queen's funeral they are only opening it up for a few hours tomorrow afternoon and decided to hang the clothes only.

During the hour Sam was there, he took in six drop offs.

Open House is back!

Sunday 11th September

Written by Sam Lefevre (he/him)

Sam and four GROAD volunteers opened up St. Faith's community centre to restart the GROAD Open House for Monday after a month off.

There were a lot of items to put on display as the shed was rammed full of donated goods. During the 45 minutes, Sam was there, he had four drop offs. All those items were stored away in the Shed to be displayed next week.

Think I better leaflet right now

Monday 1st August

Written by Charlotte Emms

Olive and I spent our Monday evening spreading the word about Get Rid of and Donate (GROAD) to the residents of Cressingham Gardens estate. Yianny had provided us with a load of leaflets with two slightly different designs to post through letterboxes, which explain how to get involved and about new drop off locations. We had a vague strategy that led us in a sort of zig zag across the estate but managed to get rid of ALL of the leaflets about 45 minutes later. We were quite chuffed with that considering there were only two of us!

Sorting out Shed 2

Sunday 17th July

Written by Sam Lefevre (he/him)

As we draw closer to the end of July, St. Faith's community centre would no longer be used as a home for GROAD until the autumn due to a summer programme in August. Therefore, items in the Shed needed to be put on display and Sam spent the hour and a bit sorting out the Shed and dismantling cardboard boxes that he took to Thorlands.

Setting up for the Mayor's visit

Sunday 3rd July

Written by Sam Lefevre (he/him)

Sam and two GROAD volunteers spent two hours clearing out the Shed and putting out all the items on the porch either inside the community centre or under the gazebo as we had to prepare the site for the Mayor's visit tomorrow. The Mayor will visit the project and meet the 22 refugee families as they attend the Open House.

There were also five massive drop-offs, which ended up filling the Shed that we had just emptied. Yet, that's the cycle.

The troublesome three packing it up

Monday 27th June

Written by Sam Lefevre (he/him)

Alice, Olivia and Sam met Andrea from GROAD at St. Faith's after work on Monday to help pack rough sleeper bags for the community mission tomorrow night on the Strand.

It's been several months since we did this as there has been a pause due to bad behaviour from the homeless, but we were back at it and we created 28 bags within the hour and sorted out rhe Shed.
