Dr Lorraine Dacre Pool, Senior Lecturer in Employability, was the event’s main organiser. She said: “The whole day was fantastic with a brilliant atmosphere both on campus and in the city.
“There was so much kindness and so many smiles. Thanks to all who made it such a success.”
UCLan also set up Kindness Kabins on campus for visitors to pledge their own acts of kindness, drop off items for the homeless and collect gifts for friends.
