Burgess Hill Youth provided a fun afternoon for 31 Young Carers on Tuesday this week. They enjoyed lots of activities including the much anticipated slime making! A big thanks to Diane for volunteering with this and leaving with very pink hands .
There was also a visit from Trixie’s minibeasts which included snakes and a bearded dragon. We also enjoyed arts and crafts, pool, table tennis and air hockey. The Mustard Seed cafe provided their lovely lunch too. A big thank you to all volunteers for supporting the event. This was supported by Crossroads Care South Central and supported by the Town Council. Click on the images to see a bigger version.

Young carers are children and young people who help look after a member of the family who is sick, disabled or has mental health problems, or is misusing drugs or alcohol. They may be someone who has direct caring responsibilities or they may be someone whose life is affected as a result of living with someone who has these conditions.
Burgess Hill Youth held an event yesterday for young carers aged 6-11 years at Fairfield Community Centre.
29 young carers enjoyed lots of activities including cake decorating, arts and crafts, flower planting, circus skills, plus a DJ workshop.
The Mustard Seed Café generously provided lunch for all attendees. Everyone had a great time particularly the pancakes at the end of the afternoon!
