Some club members (not sure exactly who, but I know of 5 at least) have been volunteering for Pembroke House Community Centre in Walworth. The are running a distribution centre to deliver food supplies by bike to people in need in the area (roughly Walworth, Peckham, Bermondsey, Camberwell). A team of 140 volunteers donate 600 hours a week and have ridden over 14,000km to deliver over 5000 parcels. pembrokehouse.org.uk/
They are still looking for more volunteers - this is from an email today: If you are still interested in joining the team packing food bags (and are able to stand for 4 hours and do some light lifting) or in being a Rider (and are aged between 18-40, able to cycle for 4 hours and have your own bike) please drop us an email on firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll contact you as soon as we can.
(That's the first I've seen about the 18-40 age bracket, so either its new or somebody wasn't looking too closely when I first went)
Personally I've been doing 2 sessions per week over the last 4 weeks, either 6-8pm weekday evenings or 10-2 on Saturdays. You won't be riding big distances (many drops are only a few hundred metres, furthest 2.5km) but its a good workout of sanitising, loading, riding, walking up stairs etc. with a laden Deliveroo bag. Definitely not a best bike / road shoes job, and you need a lock as most drops involve navigating your way into social housing blocks. And if you feel a need to check your privilege some of those estates will do the job pretty sharpish.
I suspect that other organisations are running similar schemes in other areas if you look - I met someone today who did bike deliveries for a church.
MORE RIDERS NEEDED: I have been doing deliveries here for last two weeks, they need more riders, partly as many volunteers are going back to work. So if anyone fancies a bit of strength building work with a difference, plus a fascinating exploration of the ups and downs of social housing in North Southwark contact email@example.com
