This year a not-for-profit organisation that works with youngsters aged between five and 16 that are thrust into a carer position, was chosen.

Young Carers Bucks supports unpaid volunteers in the sector of all ages. Young carers, young adult carers, parents of children with a physical or learning disability, older carers, carers from the black and minority ethnic community and those looking after someone with a mental health condition, are all supported by the charity’s initiatives.

Bethany Sawyers, fundraising manager for the organisation attended a special ceremony organised by the club. Club captains Paul Kent and Jacqueline King, presented the manager with a cheque for £3,683.54.

The money will be used to partially fund activities and summer outings for young carers currently using the charity.

Advice is given to carers across the country by professionals over Zoom. Bucks Young Carers separates its services by areas to support young people in need of advice.

A key focus for the group is making sure that people understand stress, anxiety and depression, and how people can help themselves in potentially anxiety-inducing situations.
