A Christmas break for 60 carers
Our partnership with the Rank Group enables us to fund activities for carers so that they can take a break from caring. At this time of year, we are delighted to have been able to fund a number of Christmas events for carers across the UK, just one of the many activities supported by Rank Cares.
Thanks to a grant of £500 from Carers Trust, over 60 unpaid carers supported by a Carers Trust Network Partner in North Wales had a Christmas lunch at a nearby hotel, complete with a goody bag for each carer and entertainment. It was a good opportunity for carers to meet others in the same situation as themselves and have a well-deserved break from caring, which can be particularly challenging over the festive season.
It was a great afternoon, loved the meal - company and raffle were fab too!”
Oh it’s been wonderful, I’ve really enjoyed myself, especially meeting new people.”
