Welcome support for New Forest Young Carers


Local hotel chain FJB Hotels has joined forces with the Wave 105 Cash for Kids appeal to support New Forest Young Carers, part of Community First New Forest.

The Cash for Kids team surprised the Young Carers with a large cheque at the end of March, to help with activity costs.

Young Carers Coordinator Marie Shotbolt said: “It’s fantastic news and will really help us with the school holidays coming up. We rely on donations and support like this to provide activities, so this money will make a real difference.”

One of the Young Carers added: “This money will help pay for the Youth Club I go to with the other Young Carers. It’s so important for us to get a break and just relax and enjoy ourselves and to meet new friends. I really enjoy my time out.”

The New Forest Young Carers Service currently works with over 230 Young Carers and their families providing support, advice and activities.
