Cheshire Young Carers were over the moon when we agreed to support their charity again.
For 2017, we decided to help their young carers during the school holidays by giving them some respite. Often school holidays can be anything but a break for young carers, so providing them with some fun activities, away from the home, is often much needed (and well deserved!)
Our £12,000 grant will enable hundreds of young carers, from our local community, to enjoy residential trips, days out, drop in sessions and engagement programmes.
The first of our funded activities involved a group of young carers taking part in a day of performing arts in Crewe, which included a “Crewe’s Next Top Monster” competition. We hope the young carers enjoy the many more fun activities that are planned for the summer holidays.
