Lynn Rotary Club continued its tradition of providing a special treat for young carers by holding a Christmas party at North Wootton Village Hall.
Here, 40 of them, aged between six and 11, enjoyed a party tea followed by entertainment by Razz the Clown and a visit from Father Christmas.
All the youngsters were members of the King’s Lynn Young Carers group which gives them some respite from the demands of home life. They look after a parent or a sibling with health issues.
For the past ten years the Rotary Club of Lynn’s Community Service Committee has organised a party for the young carers.
Funding for this event, and for Christmas parcels, came from a recent collection at Sainsbury’s store, and the club thanks the store and the public for their generosity.
