We have lots of decisions to make in life and choosing kindness is always a good solution.
Our mum Susan Goddard was absolutely BRILLIANT at this and was such a lovely, kind person – she volunteered to help with reading in lots of schools, she helped out many people who were lonely and needed support and she always had a smile for everyone.
She was a shining example of someone who chose kindness every single day.
This competition and award is in her memory.
Why? Because kindness matters. Choosing kindness matters
