Llanfyllin high school had a whole morning of Awareness Raising with Year 7’s taking part in Workshops led by 6th formers and Young Carers Outreach Worker, Sally Duckers. The workshops included a quiz, asking the pupils to act as agony aunts and thinking about the positives and negatives of being a young Carer.

The sixth formers then ran a cake sale over lunchtime raising over £100 for local Young Carers.
