We are in need of extra volunteers to help out with a couple of our after school groups, if you can spread the word! Our 11-16 year old group at The Greengrass Centre, Atherton ideally need some female volunteers to help balance the dynamics – they run on a fortnightly basis, starting around 5.
Martin Arkwright , Adam Houghton , Daniel Dowd and Philip Weston are running to raise money for Wigan & Leigh Young Carers and our aim is to run the Wigan 10K on September 6th and on September 20th Martin and Adam are running the Warrington Half Marathon and all our proceeds are going to this great charity which enables our young carers in the area to some much needed funds towards a break from their responsibilities at home
We are getting low on Volunteers, particularly volunteer drivers.
Trev Lewis and Nicola Wood were both nominated for the Our Stars Volunteer of the Year award.
Great write up in the Wigan Evening Post this weekend to acknowledge one of our superstar volunteers! Thanks for your continued support

Hot on the heels of their generous funding of two Christmas parties and lots of presents for our Junior and Teenage Young Carers.
