Cash boost for carers trust.

A CASH donation of small change has made a big difference to a Huddersfield charity which provides support to carers.

Carers Trust Mid Yorkshire, based at Trafalgar Mills in Leeds Road, has bought new games and multi-media equipment with a PS1,400 donation from the Yorkshire Building Society Charitable Foundation.

The cash has come from the Small Change Big Difference scheme where Society members donate pennies from their account interest to help smaller charities and good causes.

The new equipment funded by the donation includes Kindle Fire tablets, an X-Box games console and a television.

Carers Trust spokesman Mary Rogers said: "We are hugely grateful to Yorkshire Building Society members and to the charitable foundation for this wonderful support.

"Our carers and staff work hard every day and having the best available equipment to support them makes a huge difference."

Jenna Hiles, team manager at Yorkshire Building Society, nominated the carers trust. She said: "I have a sister who has autism so to come from a family that has experienced firsthand the challenges that either the individual or the family faces when dealing with a disability really made me appreciate the charity.''
