YOUNG carers had a special visitor during an activity day held to give them a break.

Joe McElderry put in an appearance at the Beamish Hall Hotel, near Stanley, where Family Action’s Bridge Project held the event for 60 local youngsters who care for sick or disabled relatives.

The Bridge supports young carers with their demanding role and provides respite activities to ease their burden. The youngsters enjoyed dance and craft classes, circus skills, shelter building and nail art.
