On the 6th November at the United Reform Church of Ewell the Rotary Club of Epsom presented a cheque for £2,697.50p to My Time for Young Carers, which is part of the Epsom Branch of Soroptimists International.
Ronnie Smith, president of Epsom Rotary Club, is pictured handing over the cheque to Nichola Walsh, who received it on behalf of My Time for Young Carers. Ronnie said that the funds were raised during a very enjoyable fund raising afternoon last September at the Epsom Club. She was delighted to hand over the cheque to My Time for Young Carers who, she said, do so much important work for young carers in the Epsom and Ewell area.
After receiving the cheque on behalf of My Time for Young Carers, Nichola said:
“We work to give young carers a chance to have fun and be ‘care free’ for a while. In 2012 when My Time for Young Carers was launched eight young people came along supported by ten volunteers. In 2018 there were eighty plus members attending clubs in four locations, supported by forty volunteers. The funds raised by the Epsom Rotary Club will make a real difference to these young people and on their behalf I thank Epsom Rotary Club for their generous support”. The Mayor and Mayoress of Epsom and Ewell also attended.
