A holiday break for one of our young carers and his Grandma - many thanks to the Lions and Ryedale Volunteer Network
We would like to say a huge thank you to Malton & Norton District Lions, & Filey Lions Club, for providing an amazing opportunity for one of our Young Carers and his Grandma Janet to enjoy a four night holiday.
They were given the opportunity to take some well-deserved respite, away from the home, and it has been just the boost that they both needed. Janet was so please, “We have not had a holiday in years, and we are having a fantastic time, it has come at a perfect time thank you to all involved.”
Not only did the Lions provide the caravan, but they, without question, provided transport from Norton to Filey and back, as well as ensuring that Janet’s mobility scooter was transported and could be securely stored.
Additionally, the Ryedale volunteer network also provided them with a food parcel to allow them the comfort of knowing that they had all that they needed during their stay, all they simply had to do was have fun!
Young Carer William makes 450 face shields for local care homes and St. Catherine's hospice
Here's a link to a video of our Young Carer William, whose family purchased a 3D printer with refunded funds from a holiday that they couldn’t go on due to lockdown. He has produced 450 face shields and distributed them to local care homes and St Catherine’s Hospice. Well done William, great job!

What a lot of Pizzas! Bellissimo!
We had a fantastic Pizza making session, all gathered together on Zoom! We were able to facilitate this with the generous donation of the ingredients prepped for us my Scarborough Community Kitchen. Many thanks to them. Helen our activities co-ordinator collected the products and carried out 15 doorstop deliveries for our Young Carers to take part. A great project with the reward of delicious pizzas to eat at the end!
