Help around the house

Rutherglen Reformer - - Info..Info..Info -

Res­i­dents in Ruther­glen are be­ing asked to nom­i­nate an un­paid carer who they feel de­serves an ex­tra pair of hands.

Team mem­bers at Mecca Bingo on Main Street are gear­ing up to raise money for Car­ers Trust when the clocks go back.

While most of the UK will be look­ing for­ward to an ex­tra hour in bed, the team will use the ad­di­tional time to help un­paid car­ers with the tasks that they can never find that spare hour to do, from gar­den­ing and dec­o­rat­ing to DIY and dust­ing.

To nom­i­nate an un­paid carer sim­ply an­swer the fol­low­ing ques­tions and email your re­sponses to mec­ca­care­o­ by Oc­to­ber 29.

What is the re­la­tion­ship between you and the carer? For ex­am­ple, are they a friend, neigh­bour or par­ent?

Which town/city does the carer live in? Who does the carer pro­vide care to? What do they do for this per­son/ peo­ple? What task do they need help with?

Com­plete this sen­tence:“This carer de­serves an ex­tra hour of time cour­tesy of Mecca Bingo be­cause….”

Con­firm the per­son is not paid for the care they pro­vide.

Club man­ager Lynne McMil­lan said:“We all know the feel­ing that there isn’t enough time in the day and un­paid car­ers prob­a­bly feel this more of­ten than the av­er­age per­son so it’s nice to do some­thing for them.”
