You may or may not know, Sunday 17th February is Random Acts of Kindness Day.
We celebrated this day last year by launching a Cumbria-wide treasure hunt, ‘Hunt The Herdy’. This involved collaborating with a variety of Cumbrian businesses, organisations, and volunteers to hide Little Herdy soft toys and Love Ewe ceramics in places such as the summit of Helvellyn, Kendal Castle, Whitehaven’s The Rum Story, and Ulverston’s Hoad Monument.
We encouraged members of the public who found a hidden Herdy to report the find to our Twitter or Facebook feed and then carry out their own Random Act of Kindness.
There are a few reasons why we think it’s good to get involved.
