Helping our local shopkeeper

Kindness can be a really small, easy thing for you that makes a big difference to someone else’s life.

My husband, Tris, recently got talking to Sam, the guy who works in our local corner shop, about having to wear a face mask all day. He said he gets really sore ears.

Tris works for a company that supplies components to the dental industry. They have a huge supply of these plastic strips: you attach them to a face mask across the back of your head so it doesn’t hang on your ears.

So Tris brought some home and gave them to Sam. Next time he went to the shop, Sam was delighted about not having sore ears any more 😃
