Helping to keep vulnerable, older people warm, one small act of kindness at a time

Why join The Kindness Club?

The Kindness Club is a community of people who want to help change the lives of vulnerable, older people who are lonely and cold in their homes.  We invite you to join The Kindness Club and be a part of making a difference.

When you join, your chosen monthly donation will be helping to fill the thousands of Small Acts of Kindness Warm in Winter gift bags that are gifted, free of charge, every winter, to vulnerable, older people who struggle to keep warm in their homes.

Joining The Kindness Club gives you so much more than the membership certificate that we will send you and priority booking to our volunteer gift bag packing sessions.

Being kind is linked to increased feelings of happiness, wellbeing, and life satisfaction for people of all ages. People who carry out acts of kindness are found to experience greater wellbeing. (The Mental Health Foundation Kindness Research Briefing Report - (2020)

“A kind charity, doing kind things. Being a part of that, only gives off kind and happy vibes”

Your act of kindness, will make you feel good, month after month, all year round. We would love for you to keep that ‘good feeling’ going by telling your family, friends and colleagues, so that they can make a difference too, one small act of kindness at a time.

The lasting difference your small act of kindness will make

A gift bag recipient told us, I have sat freezing or gone to bed early because I can’t afford to heat my home”.  Our largest Small Acts of Kindness project is our Warm in Winter gift bags which contain items that help heat the person, when they can’t afford to heat their home, including a fleece blanket, thermal gloves, hat and socks, hot drinks, soup and porridge as well as a comprehensive Purple Pages information pack, providing literature and useful numbers on opportunities for social engagement, support services and advice. This helps to help break the cycle of loneliness and isolation that can have such a devastating effect on an older person’s health.

Every donation helps us to reach more people, making them feel warmer in their homes, valued and a little less lonely. With your support, we can keep reaching those, for whom our Warm in Winter gift bags provide comfort and warmth. For many, they are a life saver. Together we can connect your community with kindness, one small act of kindness at a time. 

Thank you for your kindness and support.
