Friends of inspirational cancer teen Stephen Sutton are continuing his campaign to spread positivity in Sheffield.

The 19-year-old who raised £5 million for charity before his death from bowel cancer in May 2104 are bringing a National Good Gestures Day to Fargate on Saturday, May 16.

The event was conceived by Stephen, from Burntwood, Staffordshire, alongside young people’s charity Fixers before he died.

Days before he passed away, Stephen and his friends took part in an event in Birmingham, where he expressed his wish for the day to be rolled out each year. They gathered to bestow simple acts of kidness – hugs, handshakes, high fives and fist bumps - on strangers.

This year, 900 young people will take to the streets in 15 locations.

n The event will run from 11am to 3pm. To sign up visit www.fixers.org.uk
