Basepoint Winchester match funds £4,273.00 for Winchester Young Carers
Since April 2013, Basepoint Winchester has match funded a total of £4,273.00 to their local charity Winchester Young Carers. The total was raised through a variety of events such as charity tin collections at Sainsburys, a curry night hosted at Balaka Restaurant and a cake sale at the Brooks shopping centre.
Ben Hogbin, Manager of Winchester Young Carers charity, comments “I would just like to thank everyone who has been involved with the fund raising events so far this year, without your continued support none of these events would have been able to happen”.
In April this year, Basepoint Winchester selected Winchester Young Carers as its chosen charity, and will continue to support the charity match funding any money raised up to a value of £10,000 for this calendar year.
Winchester Young Carers is an independent charity which provides a service to improve the lives of children and young people aged 8-17yrs with caring responsibilities. They provide weekly young carer support groups, a fun activities programme, advice and guidance.
