Young carers have cheered on the Peterborough United Football Club (POSH), thanks to a donation of four tickets from Lifebuoy to watch the match against Bolton Wanderers.
The donation to the young carers and their family was part of the Lifebouy and English Football League (EFL) ‘Together – Supporting Communities’ initiative.
The young carer who attended the match said “It was good to go to the game with my brother, dad and uncle.
“Even though we lost it was fun to be together, we were shouting so loud. Mum was going to come but she couldn’t. So, our uncle came instead, he’s a POSH fan too so he was happy!
“When I’m older I’m going to get a season ticket so I can watch all the games”
Jenna Lusk, community manager at Peterborough United Foundation, arranged for the tickets to be gifted to Caring Together for us to pass them on to a family who would benefit from the a break and treat.
The young carer’s parent said: “Thank you so much for the tickets. Things have been difficult at home. The children don’t get as much time out these days. Thank you for helping to make memories.”
Mel Ford, partnerships manager at Caring Together said: “Thanks to the generosity and kindness of Lifebouy and POSH, we were able to provide the young carers with time away from their caring role where they could enjoy being children and have fun. To everyone who has supported our charity and made a positive difference, thank you.”
