“It was really touching and humbling to be invited to attend the Basildon Volunteer Awards Ceremony on 25th October. It was a privilege to be a part of the ceremony celebrating the achievements of some truly inspirational people. Kool Carers were awarded the winner of the Volunteer Project of the Year and were highly commended for its work with Young Carers and their families.
On behalf of the staff team, young carers and their families, I would like to express our thanks to Costa Coffee, who sponsored the award and to the panel who selected Kool Carers as the winner of Volunteer Project of the Year. It has been a very exciting year and I look forward to embarking on the next stage of the Kool Carers journey with you all.”
