Respite day a piece of cake for car­ers

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Housing Report -

Vol­un­teers from Ash­ford and Hythe took a well de­served rest when they came to­gether to cel­e­brate Car­ers Rights Day.

The Su­gar Craft ses­sion was or­gan­ised by Ash­ford based char­ity, Car­ers’ Sup­port, at the Sal­va­tion Army Hall in Hythe last month to co­in­cide with the na­tional cam­paign.

The goal of the cake­mak­ing workshop, which was run by friends and Waitrose work­ers Brenda Court­ney and Theresa Axon, was to give car­ers from the area some much needed respite.

Brenda, who is a carer for her mother, said: “As a carer it has been im­por­tant, not only for my mother, but for my­self and my fam­ily to re­ceive con­sis­tent and in­valu­able sup­port from all sources.

“It has been a priv­i­lege to meet other car­ers who pro­vide de­voted care to their loved ones; like­wise the Car­ers Sup­port staff who care for us car­ers!”
