At the AGM in April 2013, President Marjorie and Club members were delighted to present a cheque for £800.00 to Nicky Miller of Barnardo’s Young Carers in Morecambe.
The money raised will be used to provide financial support for courses which the Barnardos Young Carers’ leaders have identified from an ASDAN-accredited programme. The first AQA Level 1 in Self-Care: Personal Hygiene will help the young people to develop key skills, confidence and self-esteem.
We hope the children will enjoy these sesssions, gain knowledge and use it to make practical changes in areas of their life. It is hoped that the young people will be bullied less and feel less different. This could then improve their ability to benefit from their schooling.
The children have already made their own suggestions for courses, for example, they have asked for one in first aid.
