On behalf of our Young Carers we would like to say a huge THANK YOU to Wendy Brown who celebrated her birthday this week with a Race Night.
Wendy requested donations rather than cards and presents from friends and family and as a result has given us over £650 for Young Carers Support.
This very generous donation will be added to the funds we use to cover trips and club activities to give Young Carers aged 8-25 a well-deserved break from their caring responsibilities and the chance to have fun.
Young carers are children and young people who look after someone in their family who is physically or mentally ill, disabled or has a problem with drugs or alcohol.
Young carers may look after parents, care for a brother or sister, or other relative. They often take on practical and/or emotional caring responsibilities that would normally be expected of an adult.
Are you a Young Carer? Maybe you know someone is. Contact us today to see how we can support Young Carers.
