A CHARITY is calling on people in Reading to get stuck in to their latest campaign of kindness.

The John Sykes Foundation, which supports anyone in need in the town, has announced the return of 'Act of Kindness Month' this March.

The group are looking to bring together everyone in the community who deserves to be honoured for their 'extraordinary kindness and selflessness'.

Organisers said: " We are looking for more people to share their experiences and nominate somebody brilliant.

"This can be for a single heroic act, someone who consistently works selflessly for others, or someone who has been having a tough time and needs cheering up.

"We would love to hear from you so we can say Thank You."

It follows on from the successful campaign last year in which X Factor's Danyl Johnson presented a number of awards to those deserved winners.

He said: "Without these people making a difference, a lot of people who need help wouldn’t be the same without them.

"Even better when they think they don’t deserve it, which makes them deserve it even more."

Previous winners included Jason Thrower who goes above and beyond to help care for his younger brother who has Smith-Magenis Syndrome, ASD, ODD, and anxiety.

A class of pupils and staff were also nominated from the Tarrant Class at Brookfields SEN School who are 'amazing', but do not get to go out as much as other classes at the school.

Trustee of the John Sykes Foundaton, Annabelle Sykes, added: "It was wonderful to see such a happy day with so many happy faces.

"We hope that the Act of Kindness awards inspire others to smile, love, and do what they can for others.”

To nominate someone for a treat for their kindness email their details, a contact number for yourself, reasons for nomination, and how you would like to say thank you.
