Some of our Young carers had a wonderful day up in the trees at Go Ape this week. Having fun with friends and building confidence by taking on Zip Wires, Tarzan Swings, Rope Ladders and a variety of obstacles and crossings.
Young Carers who had attended a musical retreat, held over the last 10 years in France, reunite to reminisce and celebrate the programme coming to an end with staff, other carers and those who were involved in the project.
In the Easter holidays we had a Family Sports day with Sports England! Over 2 hours, we all had a go at athletics, javelin, tennis and basketball. Everyone got to practice their skills and enjoy being active. Sports England are running lots of free events in Nottingham for Young Carers and adults, be sure to check the Nottingham City Council website for free events near you!
As we know, all young carers are courageous and do amazing things every day. This year, we were invited to the Children of Courage Awards to see 4 of our Young Carers receive awards in recognition of their dedication and hard work. The event took place at Notts County Football Ground and everyone was treated to a 3 course lunch before being presented their awards by the Lord Mayor of Nottingham. We didn’t miss the opportunity to stand on the pitch either!
