If you have missed the collection buckets across site, here is your opportunity to support our nominated charity!
The charity we are supporting at this year’s event is Cheshire Young Carers, an organisation based in Ellesmere Port, and who provides respite support for some of the 8,000 young carers in Cheshire. A young carer is a child aged 6 – 18 who has a caring responsibility for a parent or sibling.
Young Carers tend to be socially excluded, preforming below their peer group at school and regularly feel they are being bullied. Cheshire Young Carers has a total staff of 5 supported by a further 15+ volunteers. The charity holds regular drop in sessions for young carers and arranges other events/trips to support young carers.
The core aims of the charity are to improve the mental and physical wellbeing of young carers by offering respite services to support them in their caring role, to support them through education and to support them through periods of crisis.
All of these activities are funded through donations from individuals, organisations and companies.
