At the beginning of April they made a Facebook group entitled ‘A Little More Kindness’, which encourages people to share wish lists and send gifts to each other as a surprise.

The pair have also hosted a bake off, asked members to nominate people deserving of prizes and sold 1,000 tickets for a raffle which saw proceeds donated to various good causes.

“People have had their own struggles during lockdown and we wanted to do something focused on kindness gestures for local people,” said Miss Day.

Miss Huddlestone added: “If you gift someone, they don’t have to gift you back. We never wanted people to be out of pocket, so if you can’t afford to send a gift it’s not a problem.”
