From children leaving a £10 gift donation to thank rubbish collectors for their work to firemen reading children's stories, tales of kindness continue to emerge across our region during the pandemic.

This week proud mum Michelle Lees from North Petherton posted a picture of her daughter leaving her local refuse staff an envelope with money inside.

She said: "My daughter is such a kind hearted girl. 

"She left the binman and the recycling men/women a note each with ten pounds in."

The gesture was met with responses of: "Aww I'd be super proud if that was my kid", "What a lovely thing to do", "How very sweet & kind hearted."

Buckfastleigh Fire Station, which is operated by the Devon & Somerset service, posted a 10-minute story for children who had asked to visit the fire station but were unable because of the lockdown restrictions.

Children have also been doing their bit to thank the region's emergency services.


Staff at Gillingham School have been making protective visors for frontline NHS staff at Yeovil Hospital.

The latest figures show the number of confirmed active cases in the South West has passed 2,000 for the first time.
