Young carers get to see exotic animals up close

Harrogate young carers came face to face with a range of exotic animals recently.

The Harrogate Budz group, run by Carers’ Resource, were visited by Dan from Knaresborough Exotic Rescue, who brought along snakes, lizards, cockroaches, a chameleon and a giant tortoise.

The young carers were able to hold, stroke or just watch the animals, and “absolutely loved the experience” and were “very brave”, Linda Hall, Young Carer Worker (Harrogate), said.

Meanwhile, Harrogate young carers who attend our uTime group have recently enjoyed a pizza night.
