RESCUING tourists in need earned several kind Londoners a medal, a bottle of champagne and unfettered praise thanks to three West Hampstead men who founded the Kindness Offensive.
For the offensive's latest project David Goodfellow, James Hunter and Benny Crane launched the Everyday Kindness Awards to recognise people who do nice things for strangers.
They spent three days on the streets of London praising those who stopped to help one of their actors in need - pretending to be lost tourists, someone who had dropped a lot of important papers or a woman with heavy bags.
Mr Goodfellow, who lives on West End Lane, said: "I read an article about a guy who fell backwards down the stairs and cracked his head but CCTV showed dozens of people just stepping over him.
