Too often, the need of a child for fresh air and play is neglected in the day-to-day responsibility of providing care. We hope to address this issue with our LET'S GO! project. Oxfordshire Crossroads has again been successful and selected as one of Tesco's supported charities to give young carers and children with care needs much needed days out. We are delighted that our project is one of the good causes selected for Tesco shops in the Henley, Reading and Twyford area.

Andrew Clarkson, Oxfordshire Crossroads head of fundraising, said: "A big thankyou to Tesco for giving us this opportunity to help others. It is great to see national businesses working within the local community to make life better for everyone."
