GENEROUS primary school children have done their bit to help the Lynn News Young Carers Appeal.

Eastgate Primary School children at Lynn raised £133.12 during collections at their Christmas performances.

The Lynn News is working with West Norfolk Carers to raise £100,000 to help ease the load for children, who are caring for sick relatives.

The appeal will be helping youngsters, aged between five and 18, who look after family members suffering from physical disabilities, serious illnesses as well as mental health and substance abuse problems.

Money will be used to pay for trips out for the youngsters along with transport to carers group meetings.
