Andy, Tina and Charlie spent a day volunteering for Barnardos Willow project this week. Willow is a support service for young carers aged 5-18 years old living in Leeds. Willow support children and young people who care for a family member affected by a physical or mental health illness, disability or substance misuse problem.
We took 9 youngsters and 3 Willow volunteers out for a day of climbing at Brimham Rocks in North Yorkshire. With 3 of us working it enabled us to fill the day with a couple of weaseling sessions as well as a number of routes and a monster abseil. They were a really up for it group who managed to deal with all the climbs that we could throw at them.
