Random Acts of Community Kindness

It’s more important than ever that we look out for each other and our neighbours. Taking the time to do a small positive act of kindness for someone can really make their day!

Here are a few simple suggestions of things you can do for any of your neighbours. It’s a huge comfort for people who are cocooning to know that someone is thinking of them.

What To Do

1.

Drop in a motivational card

 

A fun craft activity to keep children busy. Create cards with positive motivational messages inside. The more colourful the better! A little boost of positivity is a lovely thing for anyone to get through the letterbox.

2.

Baked goods

 

Dropping in a plate of cookies or sweet treats to a neighbour is a simple gesture to show that you’re thinking of them.

3.

Put together a care package

 

This takes a little bit more effort, but is a really thoughtful thing to do for any neighbour. For people cocooning, add activity books to help them pass the time. A care package can be full of whatever you want: self-care bits and bobs, treats, bubbles etc.

4.

Share your veg

 

If you’re part of a gardening group or initiative, or a keen gardener in your own garden you may find yourself with an excess of vegetables to hand. Drop any extra produce you have into your neighbours. It’s a great way to make sure nothing in your garden goes to waste and a thoughtful thing to share.

5.

Mow their lawn 

 

It’s easy to underestimate how much an elderly neighbour might appreciate the offer to mow their garden. If you have teenagers, this is a great way to get them involved in the community.

6.

Drop in a bunch of flowers

 

Nothing brightens up a space like a bunch of fresh flowers. For people who have spent the last 3 months stuck at home, a simple gesture like this can go a long way.
