We love our town. We think it's an incredibly beautiful place, and we could make it even more amazing for the people who live here through simple acts of kindness and generosity.
If you received a Love Eastbourne token, why not pay it forward? Below you'll find some really simple ideas to bless someone else and brighten up their day.
And if you've got a story to tell, we would love to here it.
Put a £10 Amazon voucher through a neighbour’s letterbox
Leave a message like "have a great day" or "for anything you need #LoveEastbourne"
Leave a generous tip at a restaurant
Wrap a £5 note around the token and place in a busker's hat
Say thank you to someone who serves you with a box of chocolates or a bunch of flowers
e.g. your kids school teachers or nursery workers. Keep it anonymous to keep it fun :)
Step in and make the difference!
Offer to help people you see in need
Whether it's the elderly, the homeless, new parents or foreign exchange students, look for ways to help people out and lend a hand.
Post this on your social media timeline:
“I’m free this weekend if anyone needs and hand with anything #LoveEastbourne”
If you're under 18 please ask your parent or guardian's permission!
Be a friend to the people around you
Help a neighbour with their gardening or jobs around the house
Volunteer for a project, cause or charity around Eastbourne
Run a business or self-employed?
Offer an unexpected discount on an invoice to a client
e.g. Discount: 10% — see www.loveeastbourne.uk
Offer a service for free
On smaller jobs surprise a customer with no charge, and give them the token instead
If you gave or received a Love Eastbourne token we would love to hear about it. If possible, take a picture and use our very simple stories form to tell us about it. You can also email email@example.com or message/tag us on Instagram using our @loveebo handle.
