Par­tyis on­the house­for car­ers

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Niki Ten­nant

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.
