After much deliberation and research, we have chosen WORCESTERSHIRE YOUNG CARERS as our charity this year. This covers all areas in Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Shropshire. Worcestershire Young Carers is a service that supports young people aged between 7 and 17 who have a caring role at home. The caring role could be for a parent, a sibling or a grandparent due to illness, disability, physical or mental health difficulties or substance misuse.
They also support young adult carers aged between 18 and 24. Their caring roles can be varied, ranging from administering medication, to cooking, cleaning and bathing, to helping to parent siblings or providing emotional support.
The service provides monthly youth clubs at two venues across the county, with clubs offered in two age groups – 7 to 12 and 13+. The clubs are an opportunity for the young carer to switch off from caring roles, offer an opportunity to have fun, get valuable peer support and have experiences they wouldn’t otherwise have access to. In addition, a full and varied programme of activities is offered throughout the year. Past examples include camping trips, ice skating, fishing, sports events and residential trips to a variety of locations.
We are going to be working closely with the organisation and ideally would like to raise enough money to either take some carers to the seaside for the day or depending on how much we raise a trip to the theatre to see a musical.
We will be holding a Charity Linedance Extravaganza day on Saturday 9th June to raise money for this worthy cause.
We will have live music from 3 great country artists; Hayden, Kenny Junior and Martin Boyd. Plus there will be a huge raffle held on the day along with one or two special ‘money can’t buy’ items with their own dedicated draw. We also expect to have many items we will auction off as well.
PLEASE COME ALONG AND SUPPORT US ON OUR CHARITY DAY, SO THAT WE CAN RAISE ‘LOADS OF MONEY’.
