Proudly Supporting Nahla Summers 2020 Kindness Challenge
The 2020 Sunshine People Kindness Challenge is now well underway, with Points of Light Award winner Nahla Summers due to arrive in Reading today. As the founder of Sunshine People social enterprise, Nahla is undertaking her biggest awareness-raising challenge to date. She is currently making her way around the UK and Ireland on an ElliptiGO bike, covering an impressive 5,000 miles. As a result of the challenge, Nahla is attempting to accomplish a world record in the process.
Aimed at producing one million acts of kindness, the nationwide campaign will see Nahla travel through every city in the UK and Ireland. Her route will spell out the word ‘KINDNESS’ as she urges the public to engage in random acts of kindness.
The background to the story..
Following the death of her partner in 2014, Nahla set up Sunshine People to spread hope, kindness and improve mental health globally. In his memory, Nahla has made it her mission to highlight the importance of kind deeds and philanthropy. Subsequently, completing physically demanding challenges to raise awareness and vital funds for good causes throughout the world.

“This is the greatest physical challenge I have undertaken to date. I commenced my journey in Truro and have weaved my way through Plymouth, Exeter, Southampton, Brighton and towns and cities in between. I’m looking forward to arriving in Reading where I will rest my legs before setting off for Chepstow.”
Travel on an Elliptigo…
Nahla will travel on average 60 miles per day on an Elliptigo bike until the challenge concludes in London on 24th November.
Nahla Summers, speaking all things ‘kindness’
“We intend to raise awareness of the positive impact human decency and kindness can have on those around us. Especially during these times as we begin to emerge from lockdown, we’re reminding people that one simple act of kindness can change the world for someone. We’re not asking for monetary donations for this challenge. We’re simply encouraging people to do something nice for someone today. Lastly, take time out to connect and engage, check in on your neighbour, buy someone a coffee or give someone your time freely?”
Nahla’s one-woman philanthropic crusade will be filmed and shared on social media to highlight the power of kindness.
