Friends of Young Carers (West Berkshire) are delighted to introduce our first local Corporate Sponsor – LANXESS UK.
LANXESS are a global chemical and polymers company with the HQ of their UK Division based on Hambridge Lane in Newbury.
Managing Director, Kim O’Connor today presented a cheque to Trustees Lynne Duncan (Treasurer) and Alison McIntyre (Chair) for the sum of £2,000.
‘We have been keen to get involved with a local charity for some time now and when we heard about Friends of Young Carers setting up as a new venture in our area, it seemed an ideal opportunity to show support for these children in West Berkshire’.
The money will be used to help fund a whole range of activities for Young Carers and Sibling Carers in West Berkshire and give a major boost to the Charity gaining registered status for 2014.
We are immensely grateful to LANXESS UK for their generosity and hope that their donation in supporting us as a new charity will prompt other local businesses to follow this initiative.
