Young Carers’ Skittle Event
On Thursday afternoon Miss Burgess (HSLW) and Mrs Webb took a group of 8 Young Carers to a skittles event held at Horley Cricket Club that was organised by the Horley Lions. Young Carers are anyone under the age of 18 who provide help and support for someone with a long term physical disability, mental health condition or problem with alcohol or drugs. Young carers very often provide emotional support as well and can feel lonely. Such events are a wonderful way for our Young Carers to meet children from other schools who are in similar situations. The children had a fantastic time paired up with children from four other Horley schools; an ice cream van visited and they took a small packet of sweets home with them – Skittles, of course!
