Acts of kind­ness lo­cally

Jes­sica’s act of kind­ness: “Where I vol­un­teer at the Syd­ney Ad­ven­tist Hospi­tal, I heard a few nurses talk­ing about a woman who was dis­tressed and wanted some­one to sit with her un­til her fam­ily ar­rived. The nurses were very un­der­stand­ing but ob­vi­ously busy. I asked if I could help and the look of re­lief on their faces was price­less. I sat with the lady and read to her un­til her fam­ily ar­rived. It made me re­alise be­ing kind has so many knock-on ef­fects we may not think about at the time.”

Matt’s act of kind­ness: “I work at Ul­tratune and on a re­cent Satur­day I was work­ing late on my friend’s car. A cou­ple came in and had an is­sue with their car. In­stead of say­ing we were closed, which is what I usu­ally do, I agreed to help them. It was only chang­ing a tyre but it meant they could en­joy their week­end. Thanks for the prompt.”
