We’re a youth movement that provide opportunities to 800 members between the ages of 10 and 26 that live in Carmarthenshire. There are 23 Clubs in Carmarthenshire that are run by young people for young people. The movement offers opportunities and special experiences for the members as they develop new skills, receive valuable training, travel the world, become an integral part of the community and have the opportunity to make friends for life.
As this awful virus has taken over, like many other Organisations, all our events and competitions have been cancelled or postponed for the time being.
Since start of lockdown, Carmarthenshire YFC Clubs have actively offered support to their local communities during this uncertain time. The Clubs have been putting up posters around the community and their local villages, on their social media pages and also put letters through the post to make sure the individuals in their local community that need support, can see the Clubs can support them in any way.
During these last few weeks, the members of the Organisation have been supporting members of their local community by shopping for them, collecting medication and also a chat on the phone. Some members have even donated food to their local food bank on a weekly basis, and even donated eggs to individuals in the community.
Many of our Clubs have also been showing their appreciation to all the frontline workers in the NHS by clapping on their doorsteps every Thursday evening, and also there was a tractor run making some noise to show their appreciation to the NHS staff and other Key workers.
We as an organisation take pride in the work that our members and our clubs continue to do in their local communities. If you, or someone you know, need help in any way, please contact us and I am positive we can support you.
