Something Different and Worthwhile

Alert message sent 11/06/2020 20:48:00

Information sent on behalf of Cumbria Neighbourhood Watch

Cumbria Neighbourhood Watch Association work in partnership with ACTion with Communities. As part of Neighbourhood Watch week we have highlighted all the excellent work being done around the County. In addition I believe it is also worthwhile sharing something that everyone can get involved in 'Plates of Kindness'
In celebration of kindness across the county ACTion with Communities in Cumbria - the rural and community development charity for Cumbria - is hosting a creative kindness competition. The competition theme – ‘Plates of Kindness’ is inspired by the many selfless actions of Cumbrians over recent months. A Mexican wave of unshakeable community spirit and kindness has been seen throughout Cumbria – from the volunteer-led community response groups and repurposed village halls; to the many bears in windows; the big clap for key workers every Thursday; street bingo and community quizzes; a proliferation of pavement art, cheerful rainbows adorning houses, and fancy dress fundraising initiatives abound.

ACTion with Communities in Cumbria is providing support and advice to some of the many community groups providing care and kindness across our communities. This competition aims to celebrate the enormous kindness that many people are showing each other. The competition is open to children and adults of all ages, is free to enter and there are a variety of prizes to be won.

To enter the ‘Plates of Kindness’ competition please email your photo or video of your
plate(s) of kindness, a title or caption, first name, nearest village or town, and age (if under 16) to:

You can use any creative medium that you choose. You might write a poem or short story about a plate of kindness; draw or paint a plate that shows kindness; create a plate out of modelling clay, papier mâché or fabric; stitch, knit or crochet; sow some seeds and grown some herbs or even veggies; bake a tasty cake or cook a healthy meal for someone.

Have a look through the Action with Communities in Cumbria Facebook page gather some inspiration and ideas. All entries will be displayed on the Facebook page but you don’t need a Facebook account to enter or to view entries.

In less than 100 words please either give your Plate of Kindness a title or provide a caption by telling us some background about it. For example, who you would ideally like to give the plate to (a family member, friend, neighbour, classmate or colleague perhaps). The important things to remember are: your entry must feature a plate and kindness, but how you interpret the theme is up to you; and stay safe and be kind! Closing date Friday 3 rd July 2020.

For further information please visit our website at: or find us on Facebook.

Good luck and stay safe.
