Young Carers Thank You For Supporting Us In 2017

Thanks to all the local organisations that helped and supported Young Carers in 2017

Thank you to Farnell Landrover, Nelson. Their continued support in 2017 has allowed the young carers to have a family trip to Blackpool Zoo, a trip booked for January to the Lowry to see Elf and lunch. Their dedication to helping the project not just from their own business, but raising awareness with other contacts has been amazing!
