KIND STORY OF THE WEEK
An act of kindness by Alfie, a 9 year old boy from Wales, has been recognised by Her Majesty The Queen. Alfie felt sad for the Queen after the loss of her husband, and wanted to cheer her up. He decided to send a sympathy card and was shocked when he received a thank you card shortly after, thanking him for his kind words.
He said: “My dog died not long ago and I was really sad about that. So when HRH Prince Phillip passed away I knew that the Queen would be sad as well.”
Local councillor Karl Lewis said: “He is only nine-years-old, and to have that understanding of sympathy and empathy at his age is marvellous.”

SHARE YOUR STORIES
We’d love to see what kind things you’ve been up to! If you’d like to share a photo of something kind you have done (for yourself or for someone else) ask a parent or guardian to send it to us.
Self-Kindness tip of the week:
Read kind stories. Studies have shown that even if we just SEE or HEAR about something kind, our brain releases feel-good chemicals that help us feel happier. So just by reading the kind story in this newsletter each week, you are already being kinder to yourself!
