Children at a small Suffolk school spent the day carrying out ‘random acts of kindness’ and bringing smiles to the faces of villagers.
As part of the school’s Kindness Week, pupils in the Woodland class at Benhall Primary baked biscuits and dropped them off in decorated boxes on doorsteps around the village near Saxmundham.
A friendly message on each of the boxes read: “A kind act from Benhall Primary School.”
Deputy headteacher, Katie Jenkins, said the children were asked to think of someone in particular they would like to show some kindness.
“We had such a lovely response from villagers,” she added.

Not content with making people’s days around the village, the children then took their kindness a step further by carrying out a litter pick on the way back to school.
