Young carers help run Carers’ Resource stall at Selby fun day

Carers’ Resource staff ran a stall with the help of young carers at a fun-filled event in Selby.

The Carers’ Resource team, which included two young carers, Alex and Sarah, had a stall at the Selby Family Fun Day to raise awareness about our young carers’ service.

They were also raising funds for summer trips for Selby young carers, and they held a raffle and did balloon modelling, which proved popular.

The event took place at Selby Community Centre and Scott Road field on Sunday 25th June, and featured children’s rides, bouncy castles, climbing wall, donkey rides and much more.

Jacky Bedford, Engagement and Fundraising Officer at Carers’ Resource, who helped run the charity’s stall, said: “It was lovely that Alex and Sarah could come and help out – they did Selby’s young carers proud! They worked so hard but hopefully enjoyed themselves too.

“The family event was very well attended and it was a great opportunity to chat to people about what we do and how amazing the young carers we support are.”

A big thank you to the organisers of the fun day, Selby Town Council, for allowing Carers’ Resource to have a stall at the event.
