Super support for Young Carers

December 21 2018

MEMBERS of Fishponds and Downend Rotary Club had a surprise when they visited Young Carers Bristol & South Gloucestershire at the Vassall Centre - the staff were dressed as super heroes for a fun day for young carers and their families.

The event was partly funded by Rotary, who handed over £2,500.

 Fishponds and Downend Rotary member Judy Powell said: "Carers lead a difficult and often lonely life. It's great to be able to play a small part in something that allows them to have fun and forget their everyday cares for a short while. Whilst the staff wore great costumes it's the young carers themselves who are the real heroes."
