Community/Vocational Service/ Kids Young Carers Visit - Saturday, 11 June 2016
As seen on Facebook
The president, Tony Billings, joined the local Kids Young Carers group recently for their annual family picnic to present them with a cheque for £550 from our Club. This will give four young carers (plus adult support staff) a well-earned break at the Young Carers Week-End at the YMCA Adventure Centre at Fairthorne Manor, near Botley.
This is a great organisation we have been helping for some time. They support over 130 children aged 6 -19 in the Fareham and Gosport area who look after siblings and parents in difficult circumstances. One Tony spoke to was only 12 years old, but supported her 3 siblings and family, two of whom had autism. A year ago, she had to give her mother an anaphylactic shock injection when she collapsed – as a result all the young carers have had up to date First Aid training.
It was also great to meet Kids YC staff Sharon and Jack and their volunteer and family helpers as they provided the picnic, did face-painting and lots of other activities to entertain everyone!
