The Mayor of Cromer Richard Leeds will attend an event for unpaid carers from North Norfolk on Monday 3rd June. Around 50 unpaid carers will take part in free wellbeing activities, receive support and advice from Carers Matter Norfolk and from local services.
The We Care Because You Care event, organised by Carers Voice Norfolk and Waveney, is designed as a thank you for unpaid carers and to encourage them to take time out of their caring roles for their own health and wellbeing.
Along with massage, manicures, reflexology and a Pilates class, there will be a gentle exercise workshop, a dance class by Marlene’s School of Dance and songs by local choir ‘Sing Your Heart Out’. Students from Paston College are also attending to gain work experience of health and social care.
Carers Voice & Co-Production Facilitator, Laura Middleton said, ‘Unpaid carers spend so much time looking after other people that they rarely get the time to pay attention to their own needs and wellbeing or to treat themselves. We want to acknowledge what they do for their families and the local community, so this event is about giving something back – a chance to relax and have a break.’
The event is funded by The National Lottery and Carers Voice Norfolk & Waveney.
We Care Because You Care event will take place in Cromer on Monday 3rd June at the Parish Hall, 65 Church St, Cromer NR27 9HH. Tickets are FREE but places are limited.
