From knitting baby clothes to cooking meals for the elderly; paying for shopping, and donating to food banks, our staff have been carrying out many random acts of kindness.
To mark Yorkshire Air Ambulance’s 21st birthday our team showed they really do “care completely” from the bottom of their hearts with more than 30 random acts of kindness.
For every act of kindness over 21 days in October, the company donated £21 to the life-saving charity. They’ve now presented a cheque for £714 to Yorkshire Air Ambulance to help pay for their vital work across the region’s skies.
Here’s a selection of the team’s random acts of kindness:
- Preparing an amazing feast for elderly members of a church so they had a hot meal
- Donating a daughter’s baby toys to Overgate Hospice
- Shopping for elderly neighbours
- Donating goodies to a local food bank
- Paying for someone’s shopping
- Making a “welcome hamper” with homemade banana cake for a new neighbour
- Donating clothes to charity
- Buying a warm drink and food for a homeless person
- Donating blood
- Buying drinks for a group of nurses on a night out
- Knitting baby hats and cardigans
Caravan Guard’s Associate Director, Laura Wilby, said she was blown away by how generous and kind the staff had been over the 21-day fundraising campaign.
“One of our company values is care completely and we knew our staff would get right behind this initiative to raise vital funds for Yorkshire Air Ambulance,” said Laura. “Many charities have faced a really difficult time throughout the pandemic and we were more than happy to help as well as celebrate their 21st birthday.”
