A young boy with a “heart of gold” has been praised for making a stranger’s day with a random act of kindness.
Six-year-old Harrison Hughes posted a caring card through five doors of his choice in Sittingbourne, alongside a scratch card in each.
One landed through Daniel Ward’s door in Rock Road last Wednesday and said: “Hello, my name is Harrison and I am six years old.
“My mummy said it was nice to do something kind and make someone smile. I decided I would like to post this card as a random act of kindness.
“Mummy said I can pick any house I wanted to post to and I choose you.
“Fingers crossed the scratch card is a lucky one. Have a great day.”
Father-of-two Daniel said he was over the moon to receive the heart warming card.
The Rock Road resident said: “A card was posted through our door with the writing “open me” on it.
"There was a letter inside from a young boy named Harrison just trying to make someone’s day with a scratch card.
“It did make us smile. He and his mum have hearts of gold.
“I managed to find his mum on social media and spoke to her about getting Harrison a gift but she was just happy he had made someone’s day and showed him the hundreds of comments, which he was overwhelmed by.”
Harrison’s mum Danielle Kemp said: “The idea actually came about after seeing someone on Instagram who had received a blank card containing a scratch card. They then paid the gesture forward.
“Harrison has a few times now given some of his toys to children less fortunate. Not that long ago he saw a homeless gentleman and his dog sitting in the doorway of boots.
“We had just lost our dog Buster and he wanted to treat this gentleman’s dog to a toy. He then asked if we could go to Greggs to get the gentleman a sausage roll and a tea because “he was cold”.
Once all five had been delivered, Danielle Kemp said she and her son spoke about how they’d hopefully made someone smile.
Sadly for Mr Ward, the scratch card wasn’t a winner.
