My favourite coffee shop is throwing open its doors on Christmas Day to feed people who would otherwise go hungry. What a gesture – sacrificing their own celebration to help others. We can’t all do something on that scale, but kindness comes in all shapes and sizes, as our feature on p60 shows. In fact, you could say it’s easy! The big day is now fast approaching, so on behalf of everyone at My Weekly I hope you all have a fabulous Christmas and prosperous new year. Our next issue will be on sale on Tuesday, December 31. See you on the other side!
