Young Carers fund raising at Droitwich Spa Food Festival
Homemade cakes and a Tombola stall

Homemade cakes and a Tombola stall

YSS Worcestershire Young Carers ran  a successful Tombola and home made cake stall at the Droitwich Spa Food Festival. This festival  attracted thousands of people, on a glorious sunny day, and there  were regular queues  at our  Tombola stall too. Almost £400 was raised  towards the Young Carers school holiday activity  programme.

Thank you to everyone

  • who gave donations for the Tombola  stall (including a  Photoshoot from a local photographer),
  • to all the  cake makers  for their  scrummy home made cakes,
  • and to the volunteers, including some young carers, who manned the stall.

Tombola in actionIt was also a great way to  raise awareness of  what a young carer may be undertaking and the  level of care they could be providing to help to look after a parent, guardian or sibling within their home, who is ill or  has a disability. This includes caring for people who have issues with drugs or alcohol or have a mental  health difficulty.

Worcestershire Young Carers aims to support children and young people under 25 years who help  to look after a parent, guardian or sibling within their home. Currently the  service is  supporting  257  young people.
