Abbey United Reformed Church, Romsey

2015 Charity - Romsey Young Carers

On Sunday 10 January 2016 Chris Hall, the Manager of Romsey Young Carers, visited Abbey United Reformed Church to collect a cheque for £1,050 from the church's Pioneers and Explorers youth sections. The money had been raised by the young people of the church with the help of the congregation. The Pioneers and Explorers had chosen Romsey Young Carers their charity for 2015. At the start of the year they learned about the work of the charity and how different the lives of young carers were from their own. They made cakes and also ran a craft table at the charity’s Family Day in August. Other activities during the year included raffles, including one for Christmas hampers, a sponsored walk, a skittles evening and a Christmas tea. There were lots of donations and everyone had been filling jars and bags with their spare change - so lots of  5p, 2p and 1p coins were counted. Chris thanked the children and the congregation, he explained that the money would be used by Romsey Young Carers for respite activities for the young people

 

Young carers are children and young people whose lives are affected by caring for a family member who has a long-term illnes or disability, mental health problem or issues with drugs or alcohol. They may care for a parent, brother or sister, or perhaps a grandparent living in the family home. Caring is not always about practical tasks. Children and young people can find themselves offering significant emotional support which can have an impact on their daily life as well as their development. For young carers the charity organises family days, outings, cook days, trips to theme parks and residential breaks.
