Raise money for children caring for a loved one
There are thousands of young carers in the UK. They are often isolated and lonely and unsupported. Please donate to help these young carers
Raising money for
Carers in Hertfordshire
Donations no longer accepted
Verulam ASC is a swimming club based in St Albans. On the 10th February, we will be replacing our regular swimming session with a sponsored long distance swim to raise funds for Young Carers in Hertfordshire. Young carers are often forced to grow up early and miss out on the same opportunities as other children because they are carers, they are often losing their childhoods and often miss out on vital school and training which can have a negative effect on the rest of their lives. Providing young carers with breaks from their responsibilities and giving them the opportunity to meet and have fun with other young carers has be shown to be extremely beneficial. Help us raise funds to support these often invisible children.
Verulam ASC - Long distance swim
Verulam ASC will be hosting a long distance swimming event. Children of 9yrs old and above will be swimming as many lengths of the pool as they can in 1 hour. Please sponsor a swimmer or donate to this charity to help support these young carers
