On Sunday 17 February, visitors to Bedford town centre were treated to random acts of kindness thanks to Family and Children’s Early-help Services (FACES) a charity which supports families under stress.
Throughout the day, the FACES volunteers and young helpers handed out flowers, and sweets, gave compliments and simply held doors open in Harpur Square. Why? to bring a little happiness to someone’s day, a smile to a random stranger’s face and of course have a little fun.
FACES are a small unique independent charity who have been supporting families in Bedford for over 30 years, offering practical and emotional support.
Barbara Castle, Business Officer of Faces said of the day: “We met some amazing people and had some lovely comments. We will definitely be back next year once again”
Last year the charity were able to support 504 parents and their 820 children with incredibly positive outcomes.
