Care Day 2018 was amazing

Thursday, 30 November 2017 14:00

#CareDay18 our third Care Day was a HUGE SUCCESS with events and activities happening across Northern Ireland and beyond. We'd like to thank everyone who celebrated the lives of children and young people in care and who continue to do so #stillcaring

The day started early with Rhiannon and Erin, two young people from the western area, speaking to guys from VOYCE our sister organisation in New Zealand over 18,000 kilometres away and ended with over 250 people raising the roof at #NightattheMuseum in the Ulster Folk and Transport museum at Cultra.
