Celebrating the work of carers

Have your say

AN EVENT is taking place to mark the efforts of people who volunteer to care for their loved ones.

Carers’ Rights Day is being celebrated in Barnsley town centre on Friday, December 2.

The event, which runs from 10am to 3pm, seeks to highlight the crucial role of carers in society.

Carers are welcome to attend the event for a free festive mince pie.

There is also the opportunity to meet other people in a similar situation and to find out about the services on offer to help people who are in a caring role.

During the event, there will also be a free raffle with a host of prizes including a Christmas food hamper.
