Not everybody is in a position to volunteer specific skills but there is always something you can do.
Over the years so many people have offered a wide range of acts of kindness from football or concert tickets to hotel stays and weekend breaks.
All of this kindness has made it possible for us to help children coping with illness and bereavement, terminally ill people, lonely elderly residents, children who have been victims of bullying and many more.
For people in the local community who’s lives have hit hard and traumatic times, this kindness has made a tangible difference and also brought our community together.

Louis meets his hero
Louis, who has cerebral palsy, is a huge fan of singer Jamie Webster and watches him on YouTube 7 days a week.
We thought it would be nice and a great morale boost if we asked Jamie to come and visit Louis and sing with him. Jamie was honoured that he had been asked and Louis was over the moon. He even got his own guitar out and played songs with Jamie!
