Young Carers at Christmas

Our Community Investment Team have been were spreading festive cheer in the run up to Christmas, benefiting nearly 40 young carers in and around East Sussex.

Osborne Property Services have been working together with Imago, a social organisation delivering a wide range of services and supporting individuals, organisations and communities, to create a Christmas Party.

We helped out at two Christmas parties for Young Carers in both Eastbourne and Hastings, where the young carers took part in festive fun, including a number of party games such as musical chairs, ‘wrap and run’ and indoor snowball and balloon racing which proved very popular! Winners from the games got the chance to have a dip in the Osborne Christmas Gift Box to claim a small seasonal themed prize.

Towards the end of the parties, we handed out presents to all of the attendees which we donated. Sharon Overy, Locality Manager for East Sussex Young Carers said: “East Sussex Young Carers were delighted to welcome volunteers from Osborne to join the fun at our Eastbourne and Hastings Christmas parties this year. The Young Carers had an amazing time and loved the games, prizes and presents that Osborne kindly donated. It’s always great to have local businesses support and Osborne have done so for a number of years now”.

We are looking forward to working with the Young Carers next year
