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!
In August the Young Carers team took a group of 40 Young Carers to Alton Towers for a few days! Find out what they got up too...
During Carers Week we organised a young carers consultation event, to help raise the profile of Young Carers and what support services they need.
We are looking to gather a highly motivated bank of Tutors in all areas of the Curriculum to work on a 1-1 basis with young people for a time-limited period.
