The Yorkshire Dales is an Awesome Place

Craven Young Carers had a fab time lighting fires and tramping around Malham Tarn.  Sarah Deane from the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust Green Guardians Project lead the way, and eventually the sun came out.  Thank you for supporting young carers.  The Yorkshire Dales is an awesome place.

Young Carers are Awesome

Craven young carers had fun with ‘veggie sculptures’ at youth club last night.  As it is Carers’ Week we talked about what it’s like to be a young carer and some thoughts shared included – ‘It’s not always just the physical help, but it’s the emotional stress that can be the hardest’……’Being a young carer gives us more skills – like empathy, and being able to cope- and having a good sense of humour helps’.  Young carers really are Awesome.

Fundraising is Awesome!

We would like to say a HUGE thank you to the staff and students of St Aidan’s school who raised £500 for Young Carers through a non uniform day.

We support around 30 young carers at St Aidans through one to one emotional support and respite opportunities. This fundraising wouldn’t have been possible without the enthusiasm of our young carers at the school who campaigned to make it happen. Thank you very much.

The important question is….What would you like the money to be spent on?! Let us know your ideas 🙂

Emily is Awesome!

Our young carer, Emily, 16, is awesome. She spoke live on Radio York about being a young carer and the support our service has provided her with. Radio York breakfast presenter Kay Crewdson is running the famous Knaresborough Bed Race with Raworths Solicitors to raise money for our young carers. Thank you Emily for speaking so well and raising awareness of young carers. You’re Awesome!

Thank you Betty’s Cookery school for letting us come along for wonderful morning of bread making. We also got to go behind the scenes in the Betty’s factory to see all the bread and confectionery being made. Our favorites were the hundreds of french fondants 😀

A big thank you to Knaresborough Rotary Club who very kindly funded our mega fun filled day trip to Blackpool Pleasure Beach. Our teenage young carers had lots of fun on the big dipper, pepsi max, grand national and all the other classics! They were all well and truly worn out and slept the whole way home. Thank you Knaresborough Rotarians – you’re awesome!

Bowling is Awesome

Thank you to Matrix Bowling at Skipton for supporting young carers with discounted rates.  We had a great time.

 

The Sneath Family are Awesome

A very big THANK YOU  to David and Pam Sneath (Maisie’s grandparents) who kindly gave £300 to Craven Young Carers.  The Sneaths celebrated their golden wedding and very generously asked for money to be donated to The Carers’ Resource Young Carers rather than have gifts.  We’ll put the money to good use – a day at the trampoline park this summer!

Bushcraft and the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust are Awesome

Fundraising is Awesome

We just want to say a massive thank you to Harry and Stephen two of our Young adult carers. They put our names forward at their local school and asked if St Aidans school Harrogate would do a non-uniform day for us on Friday 31st March. St Aidans very kindly agreed and lots of money was raised! (still totally this up!!) Thank you!!

What truly impressed us was that Harry ans Stephen took the time out of their busy lives to think of others. They value the support we offer them and they wanted to give back. This means so much to us and the money raised will really make a huge difference!!

 

Thank you boys and Thank you St Aidans !!!

London is Awesome

Craven Young Carers enjoyed a day in London.  As well as a spin on the London Eye, they spent time in the Imperial War Museum and had a tour of the Houses of Parliament.  Many thanks to the people who donated funds to enable this trip – Friends are Us in Cross Hills, The Haworth and Worth Valley Rotary and Libby.

Christmas is awesome

We have been super busy here over the past couple of weeks delivering hundreds of presents and hampers to all our young carers and their families. The gifts were kindly donated by the Department of Work and Pensions & Ashville Pre-prep school and were super awesome and thoughtful. In total there were around 100 hampers and 300 gifts! Our young carers couldn’t believe their eyes when they saw all the treats which were wrapped up just for them. We have been generously supported by DWP for 10 years and Ashville Pre Prep for 5 Years, thank you to both of you..YOU.ARE.AWESOME!
