In a time where everything seems so, so bad, there are glimpses of happiness and hope. There are so many people offering to help others, help to our key workers, neighbours and even strangers. These acts of kindness aren’t being reported much so we plan to scour the world for good news stories and share them on here – feel free to raise a smile and share.
Good News for Easter Sunday:
For the last 30 years, the tops of the Himalayan mountains have been obscured by air pollution and smog in India. Now as the city streets are emptied of traffic the mountaintops were clearly visible to the millions of local communities in quarantine. Photographers living as far as 200 kilometres away from the mountain range have since posted awe-inspiring pictures of the snow-capped peaks to social media in celebration of the spectacular sight.
The demand for traditional milkmen has continued to increase, as the public shun supermarkets.
Formula 1 racing engineers at Mercedes have joined forces with University College London to develop a breathing device that can be used instead of taking patients to intensive care and placing them on a ventilator.
A clown who entertains some of the sickest kids has become an NHS hero in the fight against Coronavirus. Celine Mall – or Tickles, as she is known to hundreds of poorly youngsters at Glasgow’s Royal Hospital for Children – can no longer visit young patients during the pandemic, so swapped her red nose and gigantic shoes for a set of scrubs to volunteer as a domestic.
And finally… we hope you are tucking in to some tasty chocolate eggs after the Easter Bunny visited last night.
It’s comforting to know the Easter Bunny has been given official eggs-emption, to all lockdown measures, around the world and classed as a Key Worker. Phew!
And Now The Good News…
