Happy New Year to one and all. We can’t wait to get started with our programme of fundraising events for 2017. The need to offer vital support and respite activities to our Young Carers has not diminished and increasingly we shall be looking at areas of high concern right here in West Berkshire.

Due to funding cuts across the county, we are aware that more children are becoming isolated from their peers as the opportunities for social interaction and individual development seem to be decreasing. We cannot sit back and wait to see ‘what happens next’ in the hope that something will! The worst outcome for Young Carers is that NOTHING will happen.

Of course, that is not what Friends of Young Carers are about! We are kick starting off our year with a ‘Call My Bluff’ Wine Tasting event on 21st January 7pm at St. Gabriels School Hall, Newtown Rd, Newbury. The evening will be hosted by Miles Better Wines and proved to be a great success last time.

We would love you to join us if you can, £10 for a great, fun night out with Supper included.

Get in touch, you don’t need to have a team as we can accommodate everyone. Just make sure you have a driver or a local taxi firm number on speed dial!! See you there!!

ps. raffle items greatly appreciated too!

Best wishes from all the Trustees.miles-wines-logo
