A woman left handmade masks with notes of kindness to be extracted for foreigners through the city of Lincoln.
Kirsty Juniper, who is preparing to begin an infirmary degree from Lincoln University in September, used her time during the period after being discharged from work to make face masks.
Her mother Karen Nichols-Juniper says the 30-year-old had started making them for family and friends, which eventually led to the idea of leaving them for strangers.
Karen said: “Kirsty was fired from work and was looking for something to fill her time.
“He made masks for a while and sold them to relatives and friends for the amount they cost to do.
“In the end, he decided to leave them around Lincoln, as he realized that face masks are hard to find and wanted to help out in any way possible.
“So when he took his brother for a walk, who is disabled, he left them around the city.”
Kirsty left his masks in various places around Lincoln, including the Arboretum and High Street.
All bags are disinfected and labeled with the time they were sealed.
Karen says Kirsty has always been a kind and generous person who tries to help wherever she can.
Karen said, “He takes a lot of care of his brother. He suffers from whole body arthritis and lives alone.
“I live on the coast but she lives in Lincoln, which is close to him, so she regularly takes him out and makes his purchases.
“So far he has made about 50 masks and has placed a dozen around the city.
“I think it’s just his little way of helping out.”
