A young carer’s group received a a double boost this week.
As well as receiving tickets from Cineworld for the the Leigh cinema, Leigh Rotary Club’s Norman Unsworth presented volunteer Marie Ashton with a cheque for £1000 in continued support of the Thursday Turtles.
The youngsters are all in situations where they look after brothers, sisters or even parents due to ill health or other family reasons.
The group chose the name ‘Thursday Turtles’,” to reflect their weekly meeting day where they can have a well-earned break from their huge responsibilities. This gives them a chance to discuss any issues and get help and advice, whilst also having some fun.
Leader Paul Carroll thanked Tom Lyman, Manager of Leigh Cineworld and Leigh Rotary Club.
