Generosity of types accepting needs intermittently (8)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

kindness

Here is my best explanation:

'generosity' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'types accepting needs intermittently' is the subsidiary indication.

'types' becomes 'kinds' (I've seen this before).

'accepting' is an insertion indicator.

'intermittently' means one should take alternating letters.

The alternate letters of 'needs' are 'nes'.

'kinds' enclosing 'nes' is 'kindness'.

'of' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for kindness that I've seen before include "Consideration, warm-heartedness", "Goodwill", "Warmheartedness, consideration", "Compassion", "charity", "Warmheartedness, tenderness", "Benevolence", "Good deed", "Generosity towards those less fortunate" and "benevolence".)
