Acts of Kindness: Recognizing good deeds that make a difference

On Tuesday, September 13th at the first Fall luncheon, the Chantry Centre +55 in Southampton took the opportunity to recognize two individuals who had made a difference to its membership.

“We are delighted to recognize these two individuals who didn’t hesitate to make a difference for our members,” said Chantry Centre President Connie Barker.

Tami Wilson and Matt Mellor both received pins for their Acts of Kindness in ensuring that a group of seniors were able to have an outing because of a bus trip.

Wilson, a bus driver, gave up a day off to transport a group of the seniors to the Paisley Heritage Steam Show in a bus that was sponsored by local Regional Manager of 1st Student bus service, Matt Mellor.

“1st Student bus service believes it’s important to give back to the community,” said Mellor. “Admittedly, this was a first for us but we are on board to help out the seniors of the Chantry Centre in the future.”
