Blog by Jovi Edwards, Choices Officer

Kindness is very important to us at Sunnybank. We try to be kind to others every day. Here are some simple ways to show kindness to others.

  • Hold the door open for someone, especially if they’re in a rush or have heavy bags
  • Help your friend carry their bags whilst out shopping
  • Give someone a compliment
  • Let someone go in front of you in a queue if they’re in a rush or have a disability and are wearing the Sunflower Lanyard
  • Donate your time to a charity (like Sunnybank or as Red Nose Day is coming up very soon, Comic Relief)
  • Give old clothes to a charity shop
  • Donate food to your local Foodbank
  • Do extra chores without being asked to by your parents/carers
  • SMILE!!!!
  • Give someone your seat on a crowded bus/train/tube (especially if they’re elderly, have a disability where they can’t stand in moving vehicles for long periods of time or are pregnant)
  • Give directions to someone who looks lost
  • Write a great review of a restaurant (that you went to either pre-COVID or during the Eat Out to Help Out Scheme) on either TripAdvisor, Google, Yelp or Facebook Reviews
