National Carers Week 2015 was the perfect time for Herefordshire Carers Support to accept a cheque for £7, 381.43 from Sainsbury’s Hereford store.
‘We are extremely grateful to the staff and customers at Sainsburys for their generosity and to the Carers who have turned up as volunteers to help us at each of the events, in particular Trinity and Maggie. As well as raising this fantastic amount of money, being Sainsbury’s Charity of the Year has given us the opportunity to raise awareness about family unpaid Carers, in particular those who juggle work and caring responsibilities.’
Sharon Pugh, Head of Herefordshire Carers Support
The money raised will be spent on direct support for Carers of all ages including training courses and workshops, one-to-one and group support and Young Carer clubs and trips.
