Another huge thank you to the amazing staff and customers of Yorkshire Building Society in Knaresborugh who collected and donated over 40 Easter eggs and chocolate for the Young carers of Harrogate. Our Budz youth club were very happy to receive one each and hopefully they didn’t eat them all at once!
A big thank you to the staff at Harrogate College, who have been fundraising to support young adult carers. Our project supports many 16-25 years at the college through emotional and peer support, regular outings and a dedicated lunch group. Staff at the college wanted to raise awareness around young adult carers and decided to raise money – and awareness- though a ‘clothes swap’ fundraiser. Staff invited students and staff to donate clothes to sell at the event, and also encouraged them to buy some re-cycled bargains. The money will be spent on an end of year celebration for young adult carers at the college. Thank you!
On Monday 4th April come and see Batman vs Superman at Harrogate Odeon then boxing at H Hour Gym.
Cost will be £5. Exact times not yet confirmed. Please contact the young carer team if you would like to come . Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
One of our Young Adult Carers is awesome with her school enterprise project! She was in Santander selling a product her team had chosen called a drink dock. The product has been designed with the intention to stop drinks spilling across the desk at home or at work.. An amazing enterprise idea, well done!
