We loved the sessions we attended in the Easter holidays. We are on benefits and struggle but It was nice that there was free activities that we could attend. So many families are unable to afford days out or activities even if they pay for school meals. It was also nice that we were able to take part.
My grandson doesn’t get many opportunities to do activities on his own with me. I haven’t seen him smile so much! This really is great as I am not able to do expensive things with him in the holidays.
A massive thank you to you and your team who provided us with a range of fantastic activities to choose from, our Young Carers (and staff) all thoroughly enjoyed themselves and had the best time participating.
