Elspeth’s podcast this week is timely, as when the cold weather starts to bite, older people in particular suffer, and tend to stay inside their homes much more. So Lynne Misner’s charity “Small Acts of Kindness” has relevance now, even here in St Albans. Lynne started on her own, just filling a bag with essentials, like warm gloves, a warm hat, a blanket, hot drinks and a mug, yes, and a pen. After a few years, she needed to work full time with a team to assist her in this charity. In this era, when people tend to aim for the large and the expensive, this is a timely reminder.
