A TOWN’S carers were given the day off, so they could receive some TLC of their own for a change.

More than 100 carers attended a special pampering day organised by Thorne Family Support Group at the Winning Post Centre in Moorends. Therapists, hairdressers and Indian dancers were among those providing a day out with a difference for those who normally devote a lot of time to looking after others.

The event was also advertised in social education centres and special schools to widen the net.

One of the organisers, Sylvia Goldspink, said: “It was a case of letting someone look after you for the day. It’s hard work being a carer and it is lovely to be pampered for a while. They were able to have a chat, take refreshments and enjoy a lunch while relaxing. It’s also good to talk to other people with the same problems.”
