WORLD Kindness Day was Friday, November 13, but the Gympie Gumnut Girl Guides showed during a visit to Gympie Library on Monday, November 16 that acts of kindness may be made at any time.

The Gumnuts thought it would be a wonderful idea to donate to the Salvation Army Christmas Cheer Appeal so that children from needy families can experience the joy of receiving a new book at Christmas time, so the group walked all the way from the Guide Hut to the Gympie Library and placed 25 new books in the Christmas Cheer basket.

The Gympie Gumnuts are a group of girl guides aged from five to seven years old, who meet from 4-5.30pm every Monday during school term.

Their recent walk to the Gympie Library was part of the Guides' State Good Turn 2015 initiative, known as Walking Together for a Healthier Queensland.

Guides from all around Queensland are hiking, walking, following trails, discovering heritage tracks and participating in scavenger hunts, while recording the number of steps taken, all with the aim of collectively walking around the state by the end of the year.

Anyone wishing to brighten a child's Christmas by donating to the Salvation Army Christmas Appeal is encouraged to drop their gift of a new children's book into any branch of Gympie Regional Libraries, up until Tuesday, December 8.

For more information on Gympie Gumnut Girl Guides, phone Heather Brown on 0413 674 457.
