Random Acts of Kindness



Dear Friends and Neighbours of Haddenham and the surrounding villages

Who would have thought that a virus could have wreaked such havoc with our normal way of life and especially to our Christmas family celebrations

Something had to be done to brighten our days, and Haddenham Rotary were determined to do that “something”

As an act of kindness we decided to anonymously place bunches of flowers around the village for inhabitants to find and enjoy from late November to Christmas

Our hope was to brighten an otherwise dull, dreary and even dark day for those who found the flowers

Your response has been amazing

The kind words of appreciation that you have written on social media make all our efforts worthwhile
From  Haddenham and District Rotary colleagues a big thank you, you are very kind and
we look forward to continuing our work with the village
providing support when and where it is needed

Keep well and keep safe

Best wishes from Haddenham and District Rotary
