Christmas Gifts for Young Carers

Dundee Carers Centre are extremely grateful to receive Christmas gifts for 200 young carers in Dundee, thanks to the BT Charity Team and staff in Dundee.

Kieran Drugan, Team Leader (Carers Support Team) said:

Staff at the carers centre are always amazed at the generosity shown. This year has been no exception with over 200 gifts making their way to young carers across Dundee in the coming days.

Throughout the year Staff from Dundee Carers Centre support Young Carers in Schools, groups and 1:1 support, in doing so they get to know some of the challenges they face as Young Carers.

Staff really look forward to this time of year as giving out the gifts is a way of recognising how amazing Young Carers are.

Kim Gansh-Stewart and Eddie Geissler, of BT Dundee said:

We look forward each year organising and participating in this cause as it sets us all up for Christmas within BT. The advisers all know when Christmas is around the corner when we (Kim and Eddie) begin the Dundee Carers Centre Young carers fund, which is very close to our hearts.

We believe in working hand in hand within the local community, helping to support local causes”.

Merry Christmas and thank you BT Staff
