Our #TUkindness competition has now closed and we are very pleased to be able to announce our winners. We’ve loved seeing all of your acts of kindness as much as we hope you’ve loved doing them! Let’s go through some of our lucky winners and share their act of kindness.
Some of our lucky winners
First up, we will start with @mrsangelapagan on Twitter who very kindly knits “Twiddlemuffs” to give to people at local care homes with Alzheimer’s and dementia. She explains that the mitts give them something to do with their restless hands as well as keeping them warm and cosy.

Going through my pics and I come across these. My partner at the time was going through his tour of Afghanistan and my first time on a plane and what did I do? Throw myself out of there. All for a good cause to raise money for Afghan heroes, together we raised £1030 for our troops. #TUkindness #charityskydive #afghanheroes
We really loved reading @SurrealSerene_’s act of kindness. She ran a project where she raised money for Palestine orphans. This one really made us smile. We hope you enjoy your prize!

Finally, huge thanks for @Tayen_Lee who rescued this lost bear from the side of a busy road. She even tried to reunite the bear with its human, we hope they are reunited soon!
@Travel_Up @British_Airways I do volunteer work, but I think that is everyone’s duty.. not a RAOK.. However, I did rescue this lost bear from the side of a busy road and tried to reunite him with his little human; until he gets back home, he is staying with me.. #TUkindness pic.twitter.com/mqSuMqkFbO

Although the competition is now over, these examples prove that a small act can go a long way. We hope you carry on with your random acts of kindness and would still love to see them if you want to show us, just use #TUkindness on Twitter!
