Mr Kipling

From pre-destination to Mr Kipling... last week in Disciple, a discussion/Bible study group for Year 7-9, we looked at the subject of serving. At the end of the session, I encouraged the young people to make a card to say thank you to someone that serves them. A lot of them wrote cards to their parents but one lad decided that he always thanked them. So, instead, he worte a thank you card to Mr Kipling to thank him for his exceedingly good cakes.

I thought no more about this until Wednesday, when he came rushing in with a letter from Mr Kipling! (Well, the cake company...) It said that they were always grateful for feedback and were pleased he enjoyed the cakes. And they gave him a £2 voucher!

I just love this story, it is brilliant.

Maybe we coule should encourage young people to thank all their favourite companies and see what freebies we can score for our youtwork?
