Partyis onthe housefor carers
Mecca Bingo in Rutherglen is to reward the hard work of local carers with a free Hallowe’en party, complete with scarily delicious food, drink and of course, bingo, this Saturday from 6.30pm.
The evening has been organised to tie in with the changing of the clocks that night. Dubbed Care O’clock, the party aims to highlight how little time unpaid carers have for themselves and provides them with an extra free hour thanks to the clocks’ change.
The Rutherglen Mecca club created the event as part of its charity partnership with Carers Trust, which works to support unpaid carers across the UK.
Club teams conduct fundraising activity, ranging from events to sporting endeavours and more throughout the year to assist the charity in its important work.
Wendy Buchan, club manager at Mecca Glasgow Rutherglen, said: “The team here works tirelessly to support carers and this is one of many activities we take part in to offer them a big thank you for the fantastic work they do.
“Britain’s unpaid carers work incredibly long hours, usually to look after a loved one. We’re looking forward to welcoming local carers to the club and offering them a free evening of well-deserved fun.”
Carers who would like to attend the Care O’clock event can register via their local Carers Trust carers’ service.
The offer is limited to 10 carers, so book early to avoid disappointment.
