The Co-operative is donating almost £40,000 to help young carers across the UK.
The money, £39,582, was raised through sales of the retailer's Christmas charity sandwiches. The donation will go to YCNet, part of The Princess Royal Trust for Carers.
YCNet is the only dedicated website and online support service for children and young people under the age of 18, who help to look after someone in their family with an illness, disability, drug/alcohol addiction or mental health problem. Some of the young carers are only five years old.
