Young Carers Adventure

Friday 20th July 2012

Blackpool was the destination for ten young carers who spent four days exploring the many attractions on offer.  Many had to conquer their fear of heights to get to the very top of Blackpool Tower and a fun-filled day was spent taking in the thrills and spills of Blackpool Pleasure Beach.  The young carers also had a brush with fame, bumping into the rich and famous at Madame Tussauds, the local waxwork museum.

While on the trip the young carers worked very hard to complete a portfolio of their experiences and challenges in order to gain a Dynamic Youth Award.  This will give them recognition for their achievements gained on their trip
