THERE is just a week to go until this year’s Bromsgrove Day of Kindness takes place in the town.
Residents young and old from across the district are being urged to do a good deed on the day.
As part of this year’s event, next Thursday (October 23), people are urged to undertake a thankless task or two for others, whether that be going to see a friend they have not seen for ages, helping someone out with a chore or just striking up a conversation with someone they have never spoken to before.
This is the ninth year the Day of Kindness has been held and organiser Phil Haynes is hoping the response will be as good as it has in previous years.
“So many people tell me they always look forward to the Day of Kindness and it’s great that it is almost here again.
“When people do something for someone else, it makes them feel good – we need to harbour and spread that sense of community spirit which because of our busy lifestyles we often tend to forget.
“If we all do just one kind act on October 23 it will make Bromsgrove a better place and give us something to build on for the future.”
A day of entertainment, hosted by Trevor T, will be held in Bromsgrove Town Centre and there will be a variety of stalls from organisations and charities, including the town twinning association, Willows hedgehog rescue, Liiby Mae’s Little Angels, the Primrose Hospice, NewStarts, the Basement Project and the Bromsgrove Lions.
There wil also be dance, including Zumba sessions with Nicola Carless, information stalls and the giving of flowers and cards.
One of the highlights will be the mass singalong and conga to The Beatles’ classic Let it Be.
