KIND Bewdley rotarians have provided a welcome cash boost for young carers in the county following a charity golf day.

The Rotary Club of Bewdley donated £300 to support Worcestershire Young Carers, which is one of its chosen charities to support.

Worcestershire Young Carers has been successfully delivered by independent charity YSS (Your Support Service) since 2003 and currently supports more than 450 young carers across the region every year.

The caring role could be for a parent, sibling or grandparent due to illness, disability, physical or mental ill health or substance misuse.

As well as assessment, signposting and one-to-one support, the service also delivers regular clubs, trips and activities throughout the year.

Jon Cawdron, Worcestershire Young Carers Senior Project Coordinator, attended the Rotary Club’s presentation evening held where he was presented with the cheque.

He said: “I was made to feel extremely welcome throughout the evening and learned a great deal about the fantastic work that Bewdley Rotary Club undertakes for the local community.

“We’re extremely grateful to receive such a generous donation, which will be used to help deliver a range of up and coming Christmas activities and parties, providing a great opportunity for young carers to get together, have some fun and enjoy a break away from their caring roles.”
