Funeral colleagues creating kindness
Lincolnshire Co-op funeral colleagues have been getting crafty with kindness stones to spread joy among our community.
Kindness stones are a viral trend where people paint rocks or stones with inspirational messages or pretty pictures, then leave them in public places for people to find. The intention is to spread kindness and love to people around the world.
Colleagues from Lincolnshire Co-op funeral homes have been painting these positive pebbles and hiding them all across our trading area. One of these colleagues is Jane Caballero-Wood, Funeral Arranger at Retford Funeral Home, who hopes to spread a little positivity in the community.
Jane said: "Sometimes a simple message of love and kindness can evoke joy and brighten someone’s whole day."
Colleagues in some of our other funeral homes, including Scunthorpe, Market Rasen, Newark, and Gainsborough have taken up the kindness stones so far. Our teams are encouraging others to get involved and have been in touch with various care homes and nurseries. Members of the public might spot the kindness stones when they're out and about in the community or see them in the window displays of some of our branches.
