Story

Support Boom! and make a difference to young people across Norfolk!

Each year, our Boom! Young Carers take a residential trip, helping them escape their day-to-day pressures in a fun and friendly environment! With plenty of activities planned, such as high ropes, canoeing and a trip to the theatre they will have the opportunity to forge new friendships and create amazing memories.

By donating or raising money through this campaign, you can make a direct impact and help us fund a residential trip for Boom! Hear from Alice, our Development Manager, on the importance of this annual trip:

I love being able to take young people away on residentials as it’s through shared experiences such as these that we see them forge lasting friendships. By having this opportunity to go away for a couple of nights the Young Carers step outside of their comfort zone and build resilience and confidence to be themselves.

For young people across Norfolk, Boom! Young Carers provides positive activities through specialist groups running throughout the year along with trips, visits and activities in school holidays. These groups develop confidence, independence and give the opportunity to try new experiences. If you’d like to learn more about Boom! and your fundraising impact get in touch with us at events@benjaminfoundation.co.uk.

That was the best weekend! I made some great friends and it was so nice to be able to get out and do some things I haven’t done before
