In a charity partnership new for this year, Boleh recently took 12 young carers and their 4 case workers from Youth Action Wiltshire sailing in the Solent. The young carers, aged between 10 and 15, face responsibilities in their everyday lives that many adults would find daunting. It was therefore a pleasure to give these inspirational youngsters some ‘wonderful respite days’ from their normal routine.
Feedback shows how much the young carers took from Boleh’s ‘can-do’ experience, with comments like: “This is so cool, I never thought I would be able to do this”; “I have had the best day…I want to do this again”; and “I didn’t think I would enjoy it as much as I did“. The days were also much enjoyed by YAW staff and Boleh crew, with both days being judged a great success for all involved. We look forward to further rewarding sails generously funded by the Samuel William Farmer Trust.
