CARERS are being helped to stay on the road during bad weather with special packs.
Winter driving packs were handed out by Amey, Sheffield Council’s highways contractor, at a meeting of Sheffield Carers’ Forum at the United Reformed Church, Norfolk Street.
Some 300 packs have been donated for carers, including a mug so drivers can take a warm drink with them on their journey, some de-icer, a mini ice scraper, and a tax disc holder featuring winter driving safety tips.
Chris Morris, Amey operations director, said: “We w know how important it is for people who are carers to be able to get out and about.
“I hope these packs will give them a hand.”
