It’s that time of year when we get busy with Christmas activities for our young carers. Each year, local support and generosity makes this time of year even more special.

We'd like to say a big thank you to all the individuals and companies who have given donations for our young carers Christmas Party, which will take place on 20th December. 

Donations have included decorations for our hall, selection boxes and sweets, Christmas crackers, Christmas trees and cash donations. A big thankyou goes to the Community Champions at Tesco and Morrisons in Consett, who both kindly donated a trolley full of goodies!

We’ve also been able to arrange a trip to the pantomime at Newcastle Theatre Royal, a Christmas meal for our teenage young carers, and an ice-skating trip. All of this has been funded by kind donations from individuals.

These activities will make a huge difference to the young carers we support.
On behalf of them, we would like to thank everyone and wish you a happy Christmas and a healthy and prosperous New Year!

Carol Watson. Young Carer Service Lead.
