The kindness of strangers

The kindness of strangers

Topic: Insight /

Football coach and former player Gary Neville recently announced that the two hotels he co-owns with his former Manchester United teammate Ryan Giggs will be made to NHS staff free of charge. 

However, whilst it might be the celebrities and the sports stars grabbing headlines, any cursory glance on social media will find small acts of kindness that prove people’s capacity for kindness knows no bounds.

Consider the good samaritans in Ripon who’ve instigated a red card/green card system for their vulnerable neighbours so they can signal if they need assistance. It’s small gestures of kindness like these that create a sense of community, putting us in the best possible position to confront this global pandemic.
