Swanton Services Embrace Kindness Day Challenge

This year’s Random Acts of Kindness Day prompted people supported at Swanton services across the UK to make unexpected, lovely gestures.

At Towyn Way, Karl surprised his support workers by making a jam sandwich for one of the other people supported at the service. 

They said Karl, who is well known for being a very kind, gentle person, often looks out for others, and he made the sandwich because he knew the recipient wouldn’t be able to do it for themselves.

Meanwhile, at Baylis Place, Rebecca gave the visiting District Nurse some gorgeous hand cream and chocolates to share with her colleagues.

The delicious and thoughtful treats were much appreciated by the District Nurse, who was moved by such kindness.

The Grove took their random act of kindness plans out of the service as Jordan was supported to go to Morrisons and pick up flowers and chocolates.

Once Jordan had plenty of blooms and chocs, he headed to the local park, where he handed out surprise gifts to delighted passers-by. 

Jordan’s support workers said that it was wonderful to see the smiles and joy from the thrilled recipients.

At Deanston House, Amy and support worker Steven cooked up a storm to give the whole of Buchanan Suite a pizza night to remember.

Not only did they bake the delicious meal, but they even made the dough from scratch!

Amy said, “I loved doing it, and I’m going to make meatballs and crumble for dinner next. I’m so happy!”

Over at Sampson Park, the kindness was extended to the community as a group went litter-picking.

Jamie, Anabelle, Susan and Amanda got busy with their litter pickers and collected bags of rubbish to keep their space tidy.

Meanwhile, at Eden View, a yummy cake was shared with everyone as a special treat to mark Random Acts of Kindness Day.

Cake was also on a menu at SCC Sunderland where Sam, Michelle, David, Gordon and Sarah Jane got together with the people they support to stop and take a breath.

They wanted to enjoy refreshments while chatting about how life was treating them all.

Not only did the coffee and cake break give everyone a chance to exhale and relax, but it also helped to create a sense of togetherness for everyone at the table.

It was a very successful Random Acts of Kindness Day for Swanton services, and we’re looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with for next year.
