Lockdown kindness by Margaret and the girls

13th July, 2020

Last month, our Barnsley team took part in Kindness for June with carers and children to encourage them to participate in an acts of kindness.

We gave them some ideas for inspiration such as writing a letter to an elderly person in a care home or baking some cakes for a neighbour. The aim of this was to raise spirits in the community and spread kindness, especially during a time where anxiety and worry is high. We were also hoping that this would help our children, who have also been affected by the lockdown, to remain positive and help out others who are having a difficult time. We received some lovely pictures from our foster carer Margaret, who with her girls spread happiness amongst their friends, family and key workers. The girls were very anxious about going outside during the lockdown, but the act of doing something kind for others and making their day, gave them the motivation to go out.

Together, they worked hard and made afternoon tea treats for their family, craft bags for their friends and gave out treats to key workers in the community. These random acts of kindness would have gone a very long way to help others and would have taught the girls a very valuable lesson!
