Young Carers were at Tesco on Saturday to help shoppers pack bags

It was another successful day for Young Carers at Tesco Extra in Burnley on Saturday. BPRCVS' Young Carers service was there to help out customers pack away their shopping.

BPRCVS Young Carers Bag Packing At Tesco

A few of the young carers the BPRCVS Young Carers service helps and supports were there on the day to help customers pack shopping away into carrier bags. All the young carers were excited to be there in their printed t-shirts and with their collection buckets eager to receive donations from Tesco customers.

Justine Duffy, Young Carers Administration Support & Activities Worker, said "the young carers that joined us for the bag pack were great. All day long they helped customers by assisting them with packing up their shopping. It was a great day and many thanks to all the Tesco customers who very kindly donated."

A grand total of £426 was raised during the day.

The money raised by Young Carers will go towards ensuring the service can still deliver to the young people of Burnley, Pendle and Rossendale who give up a normal childhood to care for a vulnerable or disabled relative.

BPRCVS Young Carers Collecting Donations

A huge thank you to Tesco Extra of Burnley for accommodating Young Carers and allowing them to raise vital funds.

Thanks to all those customers who very kindly placed a donation in the collection buckets and remember to keep your eyes open for more Young Carers fundraising activities in the coming months. Your support is always greatly appreciated.
