A care home in Worthing has experienced a random act of kindness from a social action project which has been gracing the community with beautiful gifts.
The other month, Haviland House, a dementia care home based in Goring, was gifted with lovely letters alongside some homemade flowers to show the elderley community that they are loved, remembered and appreciated.
The NCS programme is a two week initiative run for 15-17 year olds over the summer. Within those two weeks, teenagers help focus on solving problems in the community and a social action project in which one group decided to aim towards the elderly.
Eileen Garbutt, Wellbeing Coordinator at Guild Care said: “I truly can’t thank the NCS team enough. This is such a lovely project filled with wonderful and kind young adults. Our residents were very moved by the words of encouragement, love and gratitude from all those involved. It just goes to show what a little bit of kindness can do to someone.”
One resident at Haviland House said: “What a kind gesture and to know what we have done in the past has made a difference to them now is great.”
