A group of selfless villagers in North Somerset pledged to perform 800 random acts of kindness in 2015.

The idea came when they wanted to commemorate the 800th anniversary of a church in the village of Congresbury.

Youngsters gave 70 gifts to pensioners

Lovely residents did 817 good deeds in total, including children rallying together to give 70 gifts to pensioners. Aww.

One person secretly paid a neighbour's vet bill and one man was helped to his feet by kind-hearted strangers after he was knocked over.

When Leigh Wale heard her husband's friend couldn't get tickets for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, she kindly donated hers.

Youngsters jazzed up old park benches with a lick of paint, strangers happily helped each other carrying their groceries and locals made a concerted effort to smile at each other and say hello.

Organiser Becci North told The Daily Express: "A random act of kindness can be something very small but it can have a major impact on someone's life.

"It did not matter how small or large the act was, it was the fact someone took the time to help another person."
