#youngcarers #maldon #club #youngcarersawarenessday Thank you Rich Rocky's Animals - 26 Young Carers attended and absolutely loved it. They were able to feed the goat, sheep (who kept escaping!), the guinea pig and rabbit. 'How did this trip help you?' - "very stress relieving from stressful family issues at home", "a lot", "kindness", "break from caring".
