This year the Young Carers team have organized a jam-packed Christmas Extravaganza on the 15th December, 11am – 3pm at The Gateway in Perth.
The team have pulled out all the stops this year to put on a celebration fit for our incredible and inspiring Young Carers and their families. We hope to see lots of Young Carers and their families there to enjoy the disco, face painting, competitions, hair ups and glitter, inflatables, photo booth, hot dog, candy floss and popcorn stands. Not to forget THE Santa Claus will also be making a special guest appearance!
If you would like more info on this event then please contact the Young Carers Team on 01738 567076 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
