Your generous contribution to our You Help, We Help, They Care project has helped us launch even more new group activities for carers over the last 4 months!
All of these new groups are being run by unpaid carers who are keen to share their skills and passions with fellow carers.
Local carer Rosalind's online study group on the Shakespeare play Romeo and Juliet culminated with the group getting a free ticket to see a performance of the play at the Globe Theatre – the cost of which the project was able to help fund.
Yasmin was also able to start running more sessions of her very popular in-person art class. These sessions are held each Monday at the Beethoven Community Centre in North West London.
Carers have very much enjoyed the opportunity to get together for this group. The funds the project has raised has helped us pay for room hire and materials for the carers to use at the class and take home with them afterwards – so that they can practice in-between classes.
They also had another opportunity to get together at the centre for a ‘bring and share’ event where local carer Sean entertained the crowd with his tales from a life in the music and entertainment industry!
There are other fun activity groups planned in run up to Christmas, including a festive jewellery making session being run by local carer Billie!
Our regular online series of groups are also going strong with weekly yoga, mindfulness, Zumba and Creative writing carer groups.
Thank you again for your generous support which has enabled us to continue running these activity groups for local unpaid carers, helping them to have a well-earned break from their demanding caring roles.
