Watch John Lewis Christmas advert 2020 celebrating heartwarming acts of kindness

John Lewis have released their 2020 Christmas TV advert with an overwhelming theme of love and small acts of kindness.

The ‘Give A Little Love’ campaign honours local communities around the country for their response to the coronavirus pandemic and caring for each other.

It begins with a young boy looking longingly at his beloved football which has become stuck in a tree before being rescued by a young girl and her umbrella.

The ‘random act of kindness’ then sparks a chain of events which see people from across all age ranges and ethnicities helping each other out, the Mirror reports.

The advert ends with the message ‘Give A Little Love’ written in the sky with smoke from a plane resembling a World War II spitfire, in a homage to Captain Tom Moore.

For the first time ever, the John Lewis ad is soundtracked by a brand new song written and performed by BRIT Award winner Celeste.

John Lewis executive director Pippa Wicks said: “We recently set out our ambition for our business to be a force for good – so we decided that this year was the year to break the mould and do something different.

“We have a long tradition of helping support the communities which we serve, so, as we launch one of the best-loved assets, our Christmas ad, it’s fitting to take this one step further by working hand in hand with two incredible charities supporting families in need.”
