Random act of kindness challenge

These beautiful painted rocks were made by a child in Year 2. Some of them have been gifted to doctors and nurses working at the Alexandra Hospital and others have been added to the 'Positivity line' in Redditch. What a wonderful way to make someone smile and do a kind deed for others!
