Rocky's Petting Zoo vists Colchester Young Carers
Many thanks to the Rotary Club for their kind donation funding an activity for our Colchester Young Carers. Rocky’s Animals came along to the Young Carers club and two rotary members attended too so they could see first-hand how happy the Young Carers were.
Rocky’s Animals provided an interactive hour of educational, therapeutic fun for the Young Carers alongside key facts. The young people interacted with the animals during snake bathing and swimming, bearded dragon swimming and hedgehog swimming. They took part in one-on-one handling which made all the children feel special and able to enjoy all the animals together.
Rocky’s Animals also do feeding of the ducks, bunnies, sheep and goat, and guinea pigs with their full farm, this is a fantastic opportunity that works so well with all ages.
Our Young Carers were able to pet all the animals as shown in the pictures and the Rocky’s member of staff ‘Rich’ was brilliant with the Young Carers and very knowledgeable, answering all of their questions in an entertaining and informative way.
The Young Carers absolutely loved the experience.
