Law firm Heringtons has presented a group of 30 young adult carers with Christmas goody bags, as part of its support of Care for the Carers as its charity of the year.
Tracey May, vulnerable client services executive from Heringtons, said, “Our colleagues from each of our five offices across East Sussex were delighted to make donations for the young adult carers’ gifts, to help mark Carers Rights Day on Friday, November 30.
“It was a huge team effort across all the offices and everyone got behind the idea, from donating contributions to purchasing the gifts, packaging and delivering the goody bags in readiness for the young carers’ Christmas party.
Young adult carers are vital in supporting family members and friends and we wish them and all the team at Care for the Carers a very Merry Christmas.”
Jennifer Twist, chief executive at Care for the Carers, a charity that supports unpaid carers across East Sussex, said, “We would like to thank all Heringtons staff for their generous support, and wonderful fundraising.
“It was such a lovely surprise for our young adult carers to receive Christmas presents at their Christmas party this year – it helped them to feel extra special, cared for and gave them a real treat.
“Christmas can be a difficult time for carers, and can actually feel very lonely. That’s why it’s so important to support young adult carers at this time of year. The gifts that they received from Heringtons have shown that they are not alone.”
