AFTER doing 99 good deeds this year, Luke Cameron says he wants his 100th goodwill gesture to be extra special.

Tuffley man Luke, 26, has done something good for another person every day this year so far. He has been keeping a ‘good deed diary’ and picked up an army of fans along the way.

Luke, who works at House of Fraser, hopes his jolly antics will inspire others to give rather than receive.

Deeds have included paying for meals for strangers and buying friends impromptu coffees.

Luke’s good deed diary went viral online when he was filmed paying for the meal of the family behind him in a drive-thru takeaway queue.

But for his 100th deed he has a games console to give away to a deserving youngster.

He wants parents to share their stories of why their child is most deserving – perhaps they have struggled through an illness or been heroic in some way.

Luke will then choose the winners.

He said: “I started the good deed diary after going through both a lot as a child with my own heart surgery and having lost somebody close to me last year through cancer.

“I have been around the world in the past two years and have seen all levels of living from the rich and famous to the poor and poverty stricken and wanted to do something that disregards social status.

“We all need help sometimes and giving a little extra hand to those people who need and deserve it most is the aim of the diary.

“I have reached 100 good deeds and wanted to make it a milestone event so went through my possessions and decided that I really don’t need my Nintendo Wii and that it could go to a much better and more deserving home. I thought to myself I have this and there are kids out there that would kill for one of these things, so I’m giving it away to a little kid who really deserves it.”

People can share their stories with Luke via his diary at facebook.com/thegooddeeddiary.
