Small Acts of Kindness

Small Acts of Kindness is a local charity who reduce loneliness and isolation for older people across Hertfordshire. 

They do this by sourcing and distributing practical gifts and information that reduce the negative impact that feeling lonely and isolated can have on older people’s physical and mental wellbeing. They have a special interest in helping older people who are cold in their homes. They seek opportunities to connect communities with kindness.

So far this winter they have reached over 16,500 older people, many of whom are incredibly lonely and isolated. Lockdown means they cannot spend time with their family and friends and is having a huge impact on physical and mental wellbeing.

A recent recipient of a Small Acts of Kindness Warm in Winter gift bag said, "It cheered me up. When you cannot get out because of Covid restrictions I often do not see anyone for 4-5 days.”

The St Mary's Head Girl and Head Boy have committed to walk 100km during the 40 days of Lent to raise money for this wonderful charity and they would like to ask for your help.

Every donation that you make will make a difference to a local older person - many of whom have to make the almost unimaginable choice between heating and eating.

"No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted." - Aesop
