The Honeypot Children's Charity

The Honeypot Children’s Charity’s Vision is for every child to make the most of their one chance at childhood. Since 1996 Honeypot has been working to enhance the lives of vulnerable children and young carers aged 5-12 years by providing respite breaks and on-going outreach support. We give young carers a break from demanding and stressful responsibilities at home and provide a safe, nurturing environment where children at risk can develop their full potential.

John Lewis treated 12 young carers to a day out at Chessington World of Adventures. Amy, a member of our Care Staff shares their story of the day: “We started the fun-filled day by being wildlife explorers; we saw lions, tigers and gorillas too. After our wildlife exploring we went to the Sea Life centre, where we explored the weird and wonderful creatures that live under the sea and we even got to touch a shrimp, which was a first for everyone involved! But the highlight of the day for most of the young carers was watching a Sea Lion show. Finally at the end of the day, our friends from John Lewis gave us each a Monty and Mabel penguin to take home.” Thanks to John Lewis for another amazing day out and your ongoing support.

One of our amazing Honeypot Volunteers, Martina Green, was presented with an award yesterday, for an outstanding voluntary contribution to Honeypot. The award recognizes volunteers in Southampton who have donated over 100 hours of their time to good causes, and was presented by the Lady Mayoress. Clare Holloway, Children's Services Manager at Honeypot, said: "Martina’s work ethics demonstrate commitment, compassion and a true understanding of the Honeypot ethos. She is an exceptional young lady". We would like to say a big thank you and well done to Martina... without our fantastic Honeypot volunteers we would be unable to support vulnerable children and young carers.

Christmas is coming....from next week, our Christmas cards will be on sale at Winchester Guildhall! The three designs available, including the one below, are a lovely way to spread festive cheer while supporting children who need vital respite from caring. And, at £3 for a pack of 10, we think they are a bargain too!
