Lancashire Care Home Residents Make Their Own Tree Of Kindness

As part of Random Acts of Kindness Day, the Residents and Colleagues at HC-One’s Bankhouse care home in Hambleton, Poulton-le-Fylde have made and populated their very own tree of kindness with lovely caring words.

Senior Nursing Assistant, Ashley, made the incredible tree with cardboard and colourful tissue paper. Residents and Colleagues were then encouraged to write a kind message on a paper heart and fix it to the tree with a peg for all to see.

Everyone was encouraged to wear something pink to brighten up the day and spread the love through Bankhouse.

Once their tree had been populated with wonderful messages, Residents and Colleagues gathered around the tree and toasted to kindness with a glass of bubbly.

Betty, a Resident at Bankhouse, said: “I wish we could do this every day! Kindness costs nothing but means everything.”

Residents loved taking part in such a wonderful activity as warmth and compassion flowed through the home on a cold February afternoon. After populating the tree, Residents were feeling the love and decided to make some posters celebrating Random Acts of Kindness Day.

The day is held in February every year and encourages people to pay kindness forward through random acts.
