Our Captain has a monthly column in our new fanzine Forever Now. He’s back, and here’s his first instalment from May’s edition…

Hi Guys,

Hope you didn’t miss me too much!

I’ve been on holiday for a while, but I’m back and wanted to let you know that it’s still Cool 2 B Kind.

Here’s 10 kind things you can do this month!

  1. Smile at passers by

  2. Let someone sit down on the tram who looks to be struggling

  3. Make someone in the office who’s snowed under a nice brew

  4. Offer to help someone struggling with their bags

  5. Give a sandwich or hot drink to a homeless person

  6. Say please and thank you

  7. Take snacks to the office for your colleagues

  8. Phone a friend or relative

  9. Get a round in

  10. Donate £2 to Forever Manchester by texting FANZ44 £2 to 70070
