PKAVS Young Carers Service were delighted to receive a cheque for £725.25 from Elsie and Gus Cattanach this week.
Billy Morrison, Young Carers Coordinator was invited to speak at The National Federation of Occupational Pensioners (NFOP) members meeting about PKAVS Carers Hub and in particular our work with Young Carers aged 8-16.
Inspired from this presentation Elsie (who is the Chair of the NFOP) decided to do some fundraising.
Due to celebrate their Golden Wedding Anniversary in June Elsie and Gus asked their party guests to make a donation to PKAVS Young Carers instead of gifts.
Thank you to Elsie, Gus and all your friends and family for this incredibly generous donation and congratulations on your 50th Wedding Anniversary!
The tickets were booked, the passports were ready and the bags were packed! 4am on August 3rd 2017, 10 young carers met with Billy, Katie and Jasmin to head off on the journey of a lifetime.
PKAVS Young Carers Team have been busy-bees over the Spring and Summer months organising loads of brilliant day trips for the Young Carers we support.
