Acts of Kindness

Kindness costs nothing but means everything.

Supposing everyone in Frome found themselves cheered up in some way by the Kindness Festival. This can only happen if we all get involved. Is there some small act of kindness that you can add to the mix? Is there something magical and unexpected you’d like to set in motion? Let’s inspire each other during Frome Kindness Festival. Who knows where it will lead…

Here are a few ideas to get you and your friends started. If you’ve more to share, please add them to the Frome Kindness Festival Event Page on Facebook or drop us a line at welcome@thegoodheart.uk.

  • Leave a gift on a railing or seat for someone else to find
  • Pass on a book
  • Put something nice in one of the town’s Share Boxes

  • Be friendly with the people on the checkout till
  • Dispose of some litter (stay safe – use gloves or a bag)

AT HOME
