Spreading light, one act of kindness at a time

Davey’s Acts of Random Kindness (DARK) is a Newton le Willows based community action group that was set up in memory of Davey Fallon, who died in 2013 aged just 20 years old.

We wanted to remember Davey in such a way that inspired others and gave something back to the community - to make people smile. What a better way to accomplish this than acts of random kindness?

As DARK we have been performing acts of random kindness since October 2014 and the acts have included such things as paying for shopping at the supermarket, paying for family entry to local events and attractions, delivering treats to staff in all the primary schools, care homes and emergency service & NHS establishments in Newton le Willows. One Mother’s Day we gave out bunches of flowers to random mums.

We have used money from fundraisers to sponsor some local sports teams including Newton FC as well as donate to other great local causes.

We organised the first annual memorial match in summer 2014 - which became a family fun day in 2015, with zorbs, bouncy castles and other games for children, all paid for using kind donations from the public.

As DARK we hope that in remembering Davey through kindness, our actions will inspire the community to strive to make someone smile every day, and that the world can be changed – one act of random kindness at a time.

We can only continue to help others, by others helping us - donating time and/or money to our projects.

If you would like to get involved or help in any way, please contact us.

    Sun shines for Memorial Match 2017 The annual memorial match and funday was held on 8th July and the sun was shining through! We feared that there may be a repeat of 2016 when the funday was cancelled at the last minute due to bad weather, but the weather turned from the forecasted cloud and was sunny all day. View some photos from the day. During the evening The K's entertained an emphatic crowd who cried out for more. It was an awesome end to a very brilliant and emotional day. 'Dream Team' manager Bernard Court received a special thank you from us on night (pictured).…
