A CARE provider in Thurrock is looking to encourage community spirit for Random Acts of Kindness Week.

The week runs from February 10 to 16 and Bluebird Care Thurrock & Castle Point is fully supporting it.

The Random Acts of Kindness is an organisation whose mission is to change schools, workplaces, families and society by encouraging kindness.

This special week also promotes awareness of how rewarding acts of kindness are and how they can make a difference to other’s lives.

Alvin Osei-Tutu, Director of Bluebird Care Thurrock & Castle Point, said: “We are delighted to be supporting Random Acts of Kindness Week and we are encouraging our carers to complete one (or more!) random acts of kindness.

"This can be anything, from offering your seat to an elderly passenger to helping someone do their shopping. The list is endless! "Even a smile can brighten someone’s day. We believe that a little bit of kindness can go a long way in supporting others and uplifting their spirits.”

Bluebird Care is a national provider of home and live in care, specialising in working with customers who live with dementia, physical disabilities and many other acute and chronic conditions.
