Young people living in our Auton Residential Children’s home in Sunderland took the theme of showing kindness to your neighbour and turned it into reality by giving a very special gift.
Each of our young people took time to help put together a pretty hamper of tasty treats and make individual, personalised cards to surprise the Sisters of Mercy who live nearby.
“We thoroughly enjoyed putting our thoughts of kindness into action,” said home manager, Jody. “We talked about how important it is to think of others in your local community and how something simple like this can spread so much joy.”
And our young people were delighted when their act of kindness was returned with a surprise ‘thank you’ bouquet from the Sisters.
