Hilldrop it like it's hot

Islington Report written by Simon Fitzmaurice

Goodgym Islington were thrilled to return after a well deserved festive break, catching up with Alison, Emily, Caitlin and Maggie at St Mungo's Hilldrop House. Area Activator Simon lead a 2 mile run from the Arsenal Community Hub and back, connecting Camden Road and Caledonian Park on route.

St Mungo's Hilldrop House is a homelessness action charity and outreach just on the border of Islington and Camden. The team had recently dropped Goodgym Islington a line to see if we could help with revamping their front entrance garden space ready for future residents in the new year, and we were happy to oblige! One of our main objectives for the evening was to clear away lots of long, overgrown grass surrounding the centre, and to remove any litter that remained. We also set about raking up plenty of dropped leaves and foliage from the surrounding paths, and clipping away overhanging branches around the space. Very satisfying and transformational work- we gathered four full rubbish bags of litter, and at least two large building merchant bags of green waste within our 50 minutes of gardening help- well done everyone!

Robin completed a community mission. Instead of watching TV or lying in bed, Robin was out there making their community a better place to be. For making that choice they have earned the community cape.

Grocery deliveries are our Bread and Butter

Islington Report written by Simon Fitzmaurice

Goodgym Islington returns one of our favourite regular task locations at Elizabeth House Food Hub tonight. This wonderful food bank project has been connected with Goodgym since the early pandemic months, and we are so happy to keep lending a hand with this busy volunteer team!

Area Activator Simon met Victoria at the Arsenal Community Hub before heading towards Highbury Hill, and down towards Elizabeth House Food Hub. Lots of running and traveling adventures over the weekend- great to catch up! Upon our arrival, we met with the lovely team, who had set out 7 grocery delivery locations for the event. Elizabeth House operates as a supermarket for donated food for local residents in the borough- hundreds of families and isolated people have used their services over the years. Half term holidays tend to be a particularly tough time for families to visit the food hub, so our Goodgym crew have agreed to deliver these essential parcels on foot!

Victoria, Simon and Robin successfully delivered at least 15 full bags of shopping between Hurlock, Twyford and Elwood House estates throughout the evening. We also assisted with closing down the food hub for the evening, by cleaning down and packing up portable tables, ready for tomorrow.

Great job everyone! Next week, we return to The Museum of Homelessness in Manor House for another excellent evening of path building:
