Luke Cameron, 26-year-old, does good deeds everyday for 12 months in memory of a close friend, Maura, who "gave her whole life selflessly helping others around her."
Luke started writing a Good Deed blog and logged every kind gesture he made on the site, which has now amassed thousands of followers.
The kind actions range from taking out the rubbish for his elderly neighbour, to baking lemon drizzle cakes and sending them round to his friends and family. In total, Luke estimates that he has spent £3,000 in the last 12 months on good deeds, despite the fact that he was only earning the wage of a part-time shop worker.
But while many people have been inspired by Luke's blog, he has also been on the receiving end of sceptical responses. Luke said: "The majority of people love it. I have my haters, but that's a given really. I try not to dwell too much on other people's opinions."

Luke now keeps a sweet bucket on his desk, for people to grab a quick snack. He also spent an evening putting kind messages on colleagues' desks

Luke used his love of baking in a good deed - he made lemon drizzle cakes and set them to friends and family. He also bought a bunch of flowers for a friend who had received some bad luck
