Random acts of kindness

Pupils from Dawpool Primary School, Thurstaston were out and about on the streets of their village last week to share random acts of kindness to local residents. It's all part of the Archbishop of York's Young Leader Award, a school-based programme that aims to equip young people with leadership skills and provide opportunities for them to engage with their community and serve others. The idea behind the day was to help children to think about citizenship both locally and globally.

The pupils began at St Chad's church where they attended a service, sang songs, and gave a gift to each member of the congregation. Following a short picnic lunch, they set out into the village to sing to local residents and hand out gift packs. 
The first person they visited was pensioner, Muriel McKi who was herself a former pupil at Dawpool. Muriel was treated to her own private performance by the pupils, who sang on her driveway. "I was almost moved to tears. It was so beautiful", said Muriel.From there, they moved on to other streets in the area to sing and bring joy to other local residents.

There's a small parade of shops in the village and the school children took the opportunity to show a little kind kindness by handing out their gift packs to shopkeepers and customers alike.
