Have your say

A donation of a laptop by Grantham Lions will enable a carer to continue her education while looking after her mother and brother.

The club have donated a laptop to the North and South Kesteven Early Help Team for the carer who looks after her younger brother with additional needs and her mother who struggles with her mental health. The Laptop was donated by Lion Phil Marshall and his company Fengrain Limited.

The laptop was presented to Karen Brown an early help worker who said: “This will enable the carer to continue with studies towards A levels and enable her to balance her valuable caring role whilst continuing to remain in education.

“I would like to say a grateful thank you to the lions for their continued support for young carers in Grantham, Lincolnshire. The vision of Lincolnshire county council is that every young carer is recognised, valued and supported to have a good health and wellbeing, and achieve their full potential.”
