This half-term, Key Stage Two were encouraged to take part in the ‘Random Acts of Kindness’ challenge to help raise money for BBC’s Children in Need.

It’s been fantastic to see all the different kind acts that the children have carried out. These included:

  • Spending pocket money to create a special food parcel for a neighbour who is shielding
  • Making breakfast in bed for parents
  • Helping out with Diwali preparations
  • Clearing a local stream of litter
  • Writing a special thank you card to the vet who helped make a furry friend better
  • Helping brothers and sisters with their reading and homework
  • Picking up the leaves from an elderly neighbour’s pathway
  • Not to mention all the delicious cakes and cookies that have been baked!

I / we would like to say a massive well done to all the children who took part, and to the generous family and friends who donated money to support them. We set a target of £2,000 and have raised over £3,500 so far! There’s still time to donate if you would like to via our Just Giving Page.

Well done everyone – your kindness has been just what we need!

Giving is one of the greatest ways in which we can boost our own mental health and it was a pleasure to see so much participation.
