An early Christmas celebration for Andover Young Carers from Be Wiser Insurance
A group of young carers who are supported by the local charity, Andover Young Carers (AYC), were invited to a Christmas meal by Be Wiser Insurance on Monday, 14th December.
Over the last few weeks’ staff at the Company have been donating money to cover the cost of the Christmas celebration which took place at The Owls Nest in Andover. The opportunity to give the young carers a few hours away from their caring responsibilities was the aim.
Crescens George, Director of Training and Development said; “A big thank you to Hannah, Kelly and Sally for taking the lead and driving this important initiative forward, thank you also to all of the volunteers who helped on the night. The training team felt that at this time of year it was the ideal opportunity to say ‘thank you’ to the young carers for their continued support and commitment to their families. We are very proud to have such socially responsible employees at Be Wiser.”
Johanne Cote-Lyne from AYC said; “We were very pleased to receive the invitation from Be Wiser. Coming along this evening has given the two groups of children an opportunity to socialise with each other something they very rarely do. They have really enjoyed themselves and we would like to thank Be Wiser for making this happen.”
Be Wiser have been a keen supporter of the Charity over the years and would like to wish them, the young carers and their families a very Happy Christmas.
