Zurich Community Trust helps young carers to have a holiday

Leeds Children’s Charity has been awarded £500 towards the cost of providing a week’s holiday for 28 young carers by the Zurich Community Trust.  Zurich Community Trust is the community arm of Zurich in the UK and it is funded by Zurich UK businesses and employee’s generous donations.

Unfortunately, young carers may not have the opportunity to take a break from responsibilities beyond their years.  For this reason, the charity is working closely with Willows, an organisation that supports young carers, to enable two groups of 14 young carers to enjoy time and space to have fun, play, make friends, and to be a child at Leeds Children’s Holiday Centre during the summer months.

Our trustees work continually to obtain much-needed funding to help these children and an award from the Zurich Community Trust is very much appreciated.  The children will benefit enormously from this experience and will return home with lifelong memories of an amazing holiday by the sea.
