How To Celebrate World Kindness Day in Gateshead

Published by Radio Gateshead on

Tomorrow, Saturday 13th November 2021, is International World Kindness Day.

This is a day where we all take part in sharing random acts of kindness with one another. From inviting a friend around for a meal, going to coffee with a family member or even just complimenting someone for something they have done well at recently.

If you head down to Gateshead Libraries on Saturday, they will be helping you to spread a bit of joy and kindness to one another.
