Kind-hearted Bromsgrove boys praised for their kindness during Covid-19 crisis

KEEPING spirits up has been one of the most important elements during the Coronavirus lockdown and two kind-hearted Bromsgrove boys have been doing just that.

Josh and Alfie Bullivant, who live on The Oakalls, began by dropping notes through the doors of key workers to thank them for their hard work during the pandemic.

They also made cakes for key workers and got creative, producing a colourful thank you message on the road.

Next up they turned their attention to the Catshill Baptist Foodbank and enlisted the help of their neighbours on Valencia Road and Mikado Road for donations.

The pair ran up and down the road gathering the items which were then collected by Paul from the foodbank.

Their first collection yielded 300 items and the second one 383.


They also saved up their pocket money, going without ice creams for a week despite the hot weather, so they could go shopping for items.

Tracey Smith and Yvette Bennett are among their many neighbours who have been so impressed by their actions.

Tracey said: “We would like to say a big thank you to Josh and Alfie for all their hard work they have done, as well as collecting football boots for the Harry Bennett Foundation.

“They are a real credit to their parents and family.

“We want them to know how appreciated their thoughtfulness, their kindness and their uplifting acts are.”
