World Kindness Day was marked yesterday (November 13) at Uckfield Volunteer Centre.
Schools and townspeople visited the High Street premises to celebrate and to “inspire everyone to carry out little acts of kindness and experience the big impact helping one another has on our society”.
Visitors could add to a “tree of kindness” by writing messages on leaf shapes.
Inspirational mottos were also displayed in the window.
Children from Rocks Park, Holy Cross and St Philip’s primary schools visited to take part in craft activities.
For others, there was coffee and a cake with an opportunity to find out how to put kindness into action by donating time and skills to help one of the many charities and community groups in the area.
Caroline Searchfield from the volunteer centre said: “We had a fantastic day. We were joined by lots of extremely kind and well-behaved children from Rocks Park, Holy Cross and St Philip’s schools. They created beautiful kind hearts and helping hands.
“We are having a Celebrate event in July at Uckfield College when we will be recognising children and young people involved in volunteering and social action.
“The hearts and hands that were made by the children on World Kindness Day will be joined together to make bunting to decorate the hall at our Celebrate event. A big thank you to all those who were able to come.”
