Embrace Kindness: Join our Bicentenary "1824 Acts of Kindness" Campaign!

1824 Acts of Kindness

As we come to the midway month of our Bicentenary year at the University, let's embark on a journey of compassion, positivity, and unity. We are thrilled to introduce the "1824 Acts of Kindness" campaign, a collective effort to perform 1824 acts of kindness during this special year! This campaign is launching as part of Colleague Wellbeing Month, in conjunction with Bicentenary.

Why Acts of Kindness?

Kindness has the power to create a ripple effect, fostering a culture of support, empathy, and connection within our community. By coming together to perform simple acts of kindness, we can make a meaningful impact on each other's lives and the communities we serve.

How Can You Participate?

It's easy! Join the 1824 Acts of Kindness Campaign and commit to performing intentional acts of kindness. The Campaign will run from Monday 3rd June until Thursday 1st August, offering a whole 60 days to complete an act of kindness.
