Young Carers Update

Burgess Hill Youth held its Young Carers Summer Holidays Activity programme over the last week.  This included a trip to Chessington World of Adventures on 25 July, Go Karting on 27 July, Horse riding on 30 July and Abbey Field Care Home for a seaside event on 31 July.  All events were very successful and were attended by a total of 53 young carers aged 6-16 years.

Burgess Hill Youth are very grateful to the volunteer drivers from Burgess Hill Girls School that drove us to the 3 of the events and for the loan of the bus for Chessington World of Adventures.

For details on future young carers events please contact Jennifer at the Town Council by email to jeenifer@burgesshill.gov.uk

31 Young Carers had fun this week !

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   pinkhand2.

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.
