Having never had a Kidstime experience whilst growing up, I take it as an obligation on my behalf to prevent others experiencing a tough childhood.

I care for my mum who is mentally ill. Her bipolar and schizophrenia meant that her inability to recognise dreams from reality and her constant personality splits stopped her becoming the mother she could’ve been. It hurts to know I’ve never had a mother-daughter relationship. As the oldest, I became mum to myself and younger siblings; dealing with damaging, unimaginable pressures. Working with Kidstime, I’ve met kids from the age of 3 who are forced to care for parents with a mental illness. Their expertise and support help kids manage home life; without affecting their social & academic life. They successfully create better understanding & allow kids to overcome the fear of their parent’s illness.

Event details

Sahara Trek 2017

I have decided to take part in a sponsored trek across the Sahara Desert to raise money for the Kidstime Foundation and promote their service worldwide. With current plans to set up branches across Europe, this organisation has the potential to succeed with its future plans in place. Being a wimp when it comes to scorching temperature means it would be an even bigger achievement for me to experience a totally different country and trek for hours in such heat. For me to complete my walk, I will have to raise a minimum of £2000 I would like you to help me with the process. Your donations and generosity will help give a voice to young carers and make a difference to their lives.
