Delivering kindness

Going above and beyond what is expected of you, whether it’s in the work place or in a personal capacity, can have a big impact.

That is evident from the effect kind-hearted postman Steve Dunn’s actions in returning a lost room key had on the Dellwood Hotel’s owners.

Steve could easily have decided it was not up to him to return the key, simply placing it in a ‘lost and found’ box and forgetting about it.

The pandemic has impacted postal workers, who have worked on the frontline throughout the last year, working under increased pressure with more people ordering items online.

Hotels have also suffered, only recently being allowed to reopen, and this small gesture meant a lot.

Hopefully Steve can be traced so he can enjoy his free night’s stay in Campbeltown, which is also recognised for its kindness.

Playpark plight

Confirmation of the £10,000 donation towards the campaign to improve inclusivity at Jock’s Adventure Playground is fantastic but it is dependent on the remaining £15,000 being raised.

While the £1,355 donated on the online fundraising page so far is fantastic, there is still a long way to go and it would be a huge shame to miss out on this huge contribution.

Those behind the campaign are working tirelessly to boost the fund. All donations, no matter how small, would be very much appreciated.
