Thank you to all the staff and customers at Waitrose in Sidmouth for their generous donation through the Community Matters scheme.

The funding received will support young carers in East Devon.  Your generosity will help us to provide more support to young carers which will include providing extra activities for groups or to fund individual places at the Young Carers Festival, which we hope will run in 2021. 

"It was great that Edward, a young carer from Sidmouth, was able to join us at Waitrose today and receive the cheque on behalf of all young carers in East Devon. Thank you for voting for us".

Nicky Griffin, Young Carers Lead Practitioner
