Local charity give unpaid carers a treat

Local Wiltshire charity, Carer Support Wiltshire are giving unpaid carers registered with them a break from their caring role by treating them to afternoon tea during Carers Week.

Carers Week runs from 12th to 18th June 2017 and is an annual awareness campaign to bring caring right out into the open – recognising and celebrating the contribution carers make to families and communities throughout the UK.

The afternoon tea events will be held throughout the week at various locations including beautiful Bowood Hotel Spa and Golf Resort and various residential care homes in the region.  You can find all the details on their website at www.carersinwiltshire.co.uk
