“Our colleagues from each of our five offices across East Sussex [Battle, Bexhill, Eastbourne, Hastings and Rye] were delighted to make donations for the young adult carers’ gifts, to help mark Carers Rights Day on Friday 30 November. It was a huge team effort across all the offices and everyone got behind the idea, from donating contributions to purchasing the gifts, packaging and delivering the goody bags in readiness for the young carers’ Christmas party. Young adult carers are vital in supporting family members and friends and we wish them and all the team at Care for the Carers a very Merry Christmas.”

“We would like to thank all Heringtons staff for their generous support, and wonderful fundraising. It was such a lovely surprise for our young adult carers to receive Christmas presents at their Christmas Party this year – it helped them to feel extra special, cared for and gave them a real treat. Christmas can be a difficult time for carers, and can actually feel very lonely. That’s why it’s so important to support young adult carers at this time of year. The gifts that they received from Heringtons have shown that they are not alone, and that the amazing support they provide to the people they care for is hugely valued.”

Rachel Hesterbanks, Young Adult Carer Lead at Care for the Carers said of the reaction of the young adult carers when presented with their Christmas goody bags:

“They were really touched, particularly when opening the beautiful handmade glass angels [that had been handcrafted especially for the young adult carers by local crafts lady Sandra Bayley of Bijoux Bibelot Glass] and the message written on it read ‘A little angel for a caring angel’ – they really appreciated that.”
