A very big thank you indeed to Jansvans customers and staff for raising a wonderful total of £98.63 from our counter collection tins! The money will be used to support the young carers planned respite breaks. This Easter some are going swimming and having lunch at Hector's Bothy in Kyle, others are going fishing, attending an art workshop or heading to Landmark for a much needed break.
Many thanks indeed to everyone at the XCEL Church for the very generous donation of Easter Eggs for young carers and our support volunteers. The eggs have been very much enjoyed and appreciated.
Donation of Clothing and Toys
Our most grateful thanks goes to our local family who donated 'as good as new' clothing and toys for young carers and their families. Young carer families who are awaiting the arrival of a baby will benefit from the baby clothing and equipment and primary school age young carers will spend many happy hours playing with the high quality toys you have provided. The remaining pre-school toys have been donated to another local children's charity - Portree Nursery, they too were delighted and appreciative of the gifts they received.
Open Door Café, Kyle
Sincere thanks to all our friends and supporters at the Open Door Café for your latest donation of £200.00. This money will be used to support the young carers' respite breaks. Over Easter time 46 young carers benefited from a respite break organised by the Young Carer service, 27 went to Landmark for the day while others had lunch and went swimming in Kyle or went fishing or had lunch and attended an art workshop at Aros.
