Nursery’s Random Acts of Kindness Day Generates NHS Donations

Families at Little Trinity Nursery in Kidderminster donated a range of items for ‘treat hampers’ which were then donated to local NHS workers to celebrate this year’s Random Acts of Kindness Day.

Nursery Manager, Gaynor Carter, explained: “Over the course of a week the children took part in activities and events related to ‘Kindness Week’ providing us with the opportunity to speak to them about being kind, and the many ways we can show kindness to each other and how we can be kind to others.

“At a time when so many people within our country and the world are struggling, we decided that it would be appropriate to show kindness to the many people that work in the NHS, day in and day out, saving lives and looking after others. We asked our nursery families to help us by donating little treat items, which we then added to our treat hampers.”

Celebrated annually on the 17th February the National Random Acts of Kindness Day has grown in popularity every year and is celebrated by individuals, groups, schools, and organizations nationwide to encourage more people to take part in acts of kindness and is now a popular day for children and adults everywhere.

Nursery parents donated a variety of items including biscuits, sweets, drinks, long life cakes and chocolates, with the finished ‘treat hampers’ then sent to doctors, nurses, paramedics, hospital cleaners, porters and many other local people working so hard to save lives and keep people safe.

Gaynor added: “We hope our hampers will help to brighten their days and let them know that they are valued and supported and that the cards and pictures drawn by the children will demonstrate our appreciation.”
