After a fund-raising event led by Rotarian Margaret Bolton, the Rotary Club of Holt and District have been pleased to present a cheque of £800.00 to Bev Townsend, Young Carers Co-ordinator at BOOM which started work in April 2014 to provide young carers across Norfolk with access to a range of fun and sociable activities as well as essential support.
Young carers are children and young people up to the age of 18 whose lives are affected by caring for someone in their family who has a long term illness or disability, mental health problem, learning disability or who misuses alcohol or drugs.
Their service runs regular young carers' groups around the county which take place every three weeks during term-time. They provide a safe, supportive environment for young carers where they can let their hair down, make friends, play, socialise and ‘forget' their adult responsibilities for a while. It is an excellent way to allow young carers to share their concerns with people who really understand what they are going through and to seek help for any problems they may be having.
Rotary members aim to give service in their own communities and further afield, if you would like to know more, please contact Michael Elsom, Secretary Rotary Club of Holt and District T: 01263 710118
