Supporting The Young Carers Festival
With various charity events run by Thinking Space over the past few months, and many more organised for the coming months, Thinking Space were able to contribute towards the young carers outing to The Young Carers Festival.
Held at YMCA Fairthorne Manor in Hampshire over the summer, the event was organised in partnership with The Children’s Society as the 16th consecutive festival after its origin in 2000. It was attended by 1,800 young carers, who camped out under the stars with friends and family after a long day spent enjoying carnival rides, outdoor activities and performances on stage.
The aim of the occasion was to encourage people to have ‘fun, relax, socialise and have their voices heard about issues that affect them’, in a safe environment where people would not only be non-judgemental, but even relate to their current situation. The Romsey Young Carers were able to fund taking a group of 12 young carers to the festival, which we hope they enjoyed thoroughly.
Thank you to everyone who donated and helped make this possible. We hope we can continue to support the members of the Romsey Young Carers in such a positive and enjoyable way.
