Acts of Kindness

Beaconsfield's community spirit is as strong as ever. Let’s prove it by spreading the news of the many good deeds and acts of kindess that our neighbors, friends, family members or perfect strangers have performed for others or ourselves.

This is your opportunity to express your thanks. Any unselfish act, no matter how small may be counted towards our target of 100 Acts of Kindness. Help Beaconsfield become an even better place to live!
