Volunteer spotlight for July – Louisa

“Following a tough year of restrictions as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, it was fantastic to be back working face to face with the young carers for an activity day. In the morning, the group was split into two; half played badminton whilst the others played basketball. As a volunteer I supported with setting up, facilitating the activities and sanitising the equipment afterwards. We then had lunch on the grass followed by playing football in the afternoon. The young carers seemed to get stuck in and enjoy socialising with old friends and new which was great to see. A big thank you to the team at Gloucestershire Young Carers who organised the event, I am looking forward to volunteering at more face-to-face group sessions in the upcoming months!”
