Canal trip to be sponsored by Anglo Welsh Waterway Holidays, Lions Club Bromsgrove and Morrisons Rubery
Thank you  to these  supporters

Two groups of seven young carers, aged between 7 & 15, will be enjoying  a well-earned break on Thursday 17 July, travelling along the Worcester & Birmingham Canal aboard Anglo Welsh’s 36ft long day boat Emma.

anglo-welsh-logoThe trips, which are jointly hosted by Anglo Welsh Waterway Holidays and Lions Club Bromsgrove will last for two hours each, with the groups travelling to Alvechurch and returning to Tardebigge Wharf. Both groups will enjoy a picnic lunch at Tardebigge, thanks to the generosity of Morrisons Supermarket, Rubery.

Matt Anderson, manager of the Anglo Welsh Tardebigge base, says: “Canals are wonderfully relaxing places to visit.  We are looking forward to taking the group of Worcestershire Young Carers for a day out on the canal.  Travelling at just 4mph, it’s definitely the fastest way to slow down and take a break from all the amazing hard work they do for their families.”

Mary Lewis, Leader Team Manager of the YSS Worcestershire Young Carers, explains:                           “We work with Young Carers from 7-25yrs, who carry out a broad range of caring roles for their loved ones. These are children and young people with a lot of responsibilities on young shoulders, so the canal boat trip is a splendid opportunity for them to relax and enjoy an activity that they wouldn’t otherwise have access to.  I would like to thank all those involved for this is a wonderful gift, I am sure the young carers will have a fantastic time.”

Keith Godwin of the Bromsgrove Lions, adds: “When we were given the opportunity to take groups on Emma for a day trip, we immediately thought of the Young Carers in our area. They are a very deserving group of young people and, thanks to Anglo Welsh, we were pleased to offer them this day out as a special treat.”

Anglo Welsh is one of the largest canal boat holiday companies in the UK, offering the choice of over 150 boats from 12 bases across England and Wales, including Tardebigge on the Worcester & Birmingham Canal near Bromsgrove.
