Mental Health Awareness Week 18th May to 24th May 2020

Focus this year is on Kindness, and in Woodhouse and Little and London I’d say you are doing your bit by the bucket load!

As a community your kindness is heartwarming!

You are calling on neighbours, friends, family and us too :))

You are helping where you can, with telephone support, getting a daily newspaper, shopping and gardening for others

You are making meals; baking, making Jams, pickles, fruit cake and tending to the allotment and sharing with others

You are being creative and artistic and sharing this with others.

You are sharing facetime with family and friends, and zooming over a cuppa

You are sharing walks and picnics together (2metres apart) films together, conversations about nature, what you’ve watched, and theatre together

You are sharing interesting articles, digital imagery, messages of safety, poetry, quizzes, memoirs and short stories

You are spreading your kindness with your concern, care, a smile, a wave and in words, silences, and cards

and please share some kindness with yourself too

And you are even making kind donations; financial, and with food and stamps 🙂

And finally you are sharing what its like to be human: your loss, your love, fears, sorrow, wisdom, tears, hope and laughter
