2015-16 saw our 100 Good Deeds centenary project, where we invited our members, friends and community to perform 100 good deeds, small and large, public and private, committing ourselves to being a positive force in our neighbourhood and the world. As we say goodbye to the WI centenary year, we want to continue celebrating all the good deeds that our members do and what we can contribute to our local community.
A good deed means something different to everyone; we believe a good deed is an act of kindness without expecting something in return. A good deed comes from the heart and with purpose.
A good deed can involve helping someone less fortunate; cheering up a friend; donating a gift; or sharing your skills and knowledge .Your good deed can be public, anonymous, discreet or larger than life. Whatever your good deed is, share it with us!
You can share it in words, by photograph or verbally at one of our meetings. All of deeds will be featured on our bespoke webpage.
Here are some tips and quotes to get you inspired!
