Winter Warmers 2015 Appeal

22 October 2015


We are looking at providing winter clothing, food and Christmas gifts over the festive period again this year

And your support would be greatly appreciated.

1-3 young carers are living in poverty at the moment. We are asking you to buy an extra gift this year that

we can give to a disadvantaged young carer. As young carers don’t often put themselves first, this is a great way to show appreciation for all the hard work they do throughout the year.

We have set up a just give page specially for this cause, which we would be extremely grateful if you could distribute.
