‘Allo, ‘allo….pedal power for young carers

French food and wine, traditional t-shirts and berets, and a yellow bicycle all helped to create a Le Tour evening in aid of the Young Carers in Harrogate and Ripon.

Aged seven to 18-years-old, young carers look after someone in their family who has an illness, disability or addiction.



Andrea Trimmer, President of Soroptimist International Harrogate and District, chose the Young Carers for her charity this year. It provides help and support for young carers through mentoring trips, activities and residential weekends.

The Le Tour evening – organised by the Soroptimist International Harrogate and District – raised over £300 for the charity.
