Club hands over £600 to young carers

A cheque for £600 was recently presented by the Rotary Club of Corby Phoenix to young carers and a representative from the Northamptonshire Young Carers organisation during a fun event to give the children an opportunity to relax.

The club’s president, Brian Edkins, said: “Club members collected at Corby’s Morrisons supermarket and we’ve also had a few fundraising events plus a raffle held during our 25th anniversary celebration dinner.

“Until recently, we knew nothing about Corby’s Young Carers and what they achieve at such great cost to their lives. Undoubtedly, this has been an important project for our club and one that is to be continued.”
