PLEDGE KINDNESS IN BROMLEY THIS HALF TERM
Bromley Residents, Employees and Visitors Invited to Share Pledges and Pay it Forward
Saturday 17th February is Random Acts of Kindness Day and, to mark the occasion, we will be giving residents, employees and visitors to the town center the chance to pledge their act of kindness. A giant wall will be erected on the High Street for the day for people to publicly declare the random act of kindness they pledge to complete.
So, whether agreeing to cover a colleague’s shift, paying forward for a coffee from one of our cafes, doing a neighbour’s shopping or babysitting to give a friend a break, town centre visitors will have the chance to add their pledge to the temporary wall on the High Street. The wall will go on to be displayed in the window of the old Top Shop, creating a visual testament to the kindness and goodwill in Bromley town centre.
The 6ft tall and 16ft wide wall will be located on the High Street, from 10am – 4pm on 17th February. The wall will be curated by artists, Id-iom, who will help members of the public add their pledges.
To help people who want to Pay it Forward, several of Bromley’s food and drink businesses will be getting involved on the day too. Customers will be able to add an extra tea, coffee, sandwich or other item to their bill, allowing those who would benefit from free refreshments to take one and collect with no questions asked. More details of who is participating and how it will work will be shared shortly on our website in the run up to the event.
Frances Forrest, BID manager, commented: “We know that the Bromley community is full of kindness and goodwill, so Random Acts of Kindness Day is the perfect time for us to harness this and encourage people to publicly declare their pledges. We can’t wait to see what the people of Bromley will be pledging to do.”
