The event was for families who access East Sussex Young Carers service, run by the charity Imago.

The Lions have been supportive of the charity, including funding three places at the National Young Carers Festival, and donating funds from their Waitrose Christmas raffle 2016.

Sharon Overy, of East Sussex Young Carers said: “The families really enjoyed their afternoon. The weather was lovely and all had a great time meeting other families and knowing where to turn should they need support.

“The barbecue provided by the Uckfield and District Lions Club was perfect.”
