Kind­ness pays, says Yvonne

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - News -

A Char­ing res­i­dent brought a heart­warm­ing new touch to the vil­lage fete this year by launch­ing a scheme en­cour­ag­ing ran­dom acts of kind­ness.

Yvonne Fer­nando, pic­tured, a l i f e coach from Char­ing, handed out Pay it For­ward cards at the an­nual event on Satur­day.

The card r eads: “You have re­ceived a pay it for­ward card. This means that some­one has done some­thing kind for you and they want noth­ing in re­turn. All they ask is that you pass the card, along with a good deed, to some­one else, anony­mously. Con­tinue the chain of kind­ness. Hap­pi­ness is con­ta­gious.”

Yvonne, who runs Live Well Love Life at Char­ing Surgery, ex­plained that there are health ben­e­fits as­so­ci­ated with acts of kind­ness.

She said: “Most peo­ple ex­pe­ri­ence an im­me­di­ate feel-good fac­tor when they do some­thing nice for some­one else.”
