1000gooddeeds

 

On Monday, August 10th, Nottingham Post are launching a major new campaign called Good Deeds Notts, in which they will capture people’s imaginations and be something really positive. The aim is to get 1,000 people to pledge to do something positive for the community within the next 12 months.

 

We’ll follow stories on them and feature some them online, which we will get some good social media interest using the hash tag (#gooddeedsnotts).

 

A number of community groups in Bulwell are keen to supporting this initiative and will raise awareness of this excellent project. We have previously championed a similar project in Bulwell encouraging Random/spontaneous gifts of kindness in our community.

 

We believe that part of feeling good is doing good. Whether you recycle or compost, help those in need with donations or volunteer work, or raise funds to support a cause near and dear to your heart, doing something good for others makes you feel good. It brings a community feel back to Bulwell.It's in that spirit that we invite you to think about doing something good, starting something good or getting involved with something that is already doing something good - volunteer in your community, volunteer at the Bulwell Forest Garden, donate to a food bank or share year or just hold the door open for someone. It's the little things that count.

 

To find out more we invite you to attend one or more of the events listed below and get on board or contact us Via Facebook, Twitter, streetlife email us
