Waternish BBQ and Auctions
A massive thank you to Ian and Gill Williams, Chef Michael Smith and their amazing team of Young Carer supporters who organised the venue, the banquet, the raffle and the auctions. As a result of the incredible generosity of caring people both near and far a grand total of £4,859.67 was raised on the night! This money will help us bridge the shortfall of funds not currently covered by our core funding from Highland Council or the project funding provided by The Big Lottery or BBC Children in Need from the 1st of October. We are presently supporting 68 young carers in Skye and Lochalsh aged from 6 to 17 years of age.
A very big thank you to the individuals who gave personal donations totaling £111.00 this month. This money will be used to provide some special young carer treats during our October respite plans.
Open Door Café
Our sincere thanks goes to our extremely loyal friends and supporters at the Open Door Café for the latest donation of £75.00. This money will be used to support the Young Carers' October respite plans.
Waternish Dog Trials
Our most sincere thanks goes to everyone participating in the Waternish Dogs Trials - you all helped to raise a very generous grand total of £583.20 for the benefit of young carers. This money will be used to purchase respite and skill development activity materials to support the interests and skills of the young carers in our area.
