A GARAGE has fundraised £250 for young carers in Oxfordshire.

Didcot charity Play2Give was Draycott Engineering’s latest quarterly giveaway winner.

Draycott Engineering gives to the local community as part of its corporate social responsibility and has supported 42 charities so far with monthly donations of £250.

On August 7, Play2Give founder Andy Baker visited the firm’s headquarters at Rich's Sidings in Didcot to receive the donation from the automotive company.

The money will go towards supporting young carers in the town via 'Be Free Young Carers' which supports the lives and wellbeing of young carers in Oxfordshire.

Mr Baker was a young carer to his mother in his own childhood years, so the link and support for this local charity holds a very personal connection.

Play2Give is now £330 away from reaching a total of £8,000 raised for local good causes so far this year.
