1000 Hours acts of kindness have really stepped up in pace with Foodbank breakfasts, a family fun day at Trowse and a village litter pick.
At the Trowse Sports Hall, a warm welcome and a wide range of activities were on offer at a free family fun afternoon for the local community. Badminton, table tennis, football, a range of crafts, computer and board games were enjoyed by up to 60 visitors with lots of positive feedback.
Pictured above, Grace Mallett enjoyed making an “I love you Mummy” bag for mum Tracy, who was celebrating her birthday.
In Thorpe End, the Adlam family went on their own personal litter pick. Mum Nikki said: “Toby, Grace and Jojo collected litter from all around Thorpe End this afternoon, logging a great 5 hours and 20 minutes. They crawled under bushes, went into the woods and got thoroughly messy to make sure they collected every single bit of rubbish they could see.”
Grace (aged 6) said: “I can get lots of litter to make the village look nice for everyone to enjoy.” They explained the 1000 Hours project to everyone they saw.
The usual Friday Foodbank on Nelson Street was given a boost when Donna Garrod cooked around 75 breakfasts for visitors and Richard and Jo Yallop and girls provided a warm welcome.
The running total has burst through the 120 hours’ mark after a busy day of activity
