Doctor’s Visit to Celebrate Random Acts of Kindness Day

In a week-long celebration of this year’s Random Acts of Kindness Day, children at Little Trinity Nursery paid a visit to Kidderminster Medical Centre giving out flowers and pictures to the Doctors’ Receptionist and people visiting the surgery. 

Nursery Manager, Gaynor Carter, explained: “Taking just some of the children from the nursery we travelled into Kidderminster to pay a visit to the doctors’ surgery to give out our gifts before walking down Blackwell Street and handing out flowers and pictures in the street.  

“We even popped into the Nail Boutique, and as we were heading back to the minibus the owner ran out and gave the children £10 as a treat for their kindness, which we used to purchase chocolate treats for all the children in the nursery to share.” 

Celebrated annually on the 17th February, the National Random Acts of Kindness Day continues to grow in popularity and is celebrated by individuals, groups, schools, and organizations nationwide, with the aim to encourage more people to undertake simple acts of kindness for others.  

Said Gaynor: “We made so many local people smile during our outing, with the children called 'Little Angels' for their kindness and thoughtfulness, and we were told by so many people that we had made their day! 

“It’s so important for children to understand the positive impact simple acts of kindness have, and how they have the power to change how someone feels, and that it's good to be kind for no other reason than to make someone smile!” 

As well as their trip to Kidderminster and making friendship bracelets for their friends, the children took part in a litter pick around the nursery and school grounds.
