We began July with the fantastic news that we are officially Sainsbury’s (Swansea Marina)’s local charity of the year. Many thanks to everyone who voted for us, it will make a huge difference. Sainsbury’s staff are keen to get involved with Swansea Carers Centre and raise funds and we look forward to working with them.
As usual on the first Monday of the month we held our Holistic Therapies sessions, giving carers a much needed treat and a bit of ‘me time.’ One carer commented afterwards, “I feel amazing, so relaxed. The whole experience was such a treat. More please! Thank you all so much for giving up your time to enable this to happen for me!”
Also during the first week we held our monthly Book Club for carers and former carers. This support group has been running for over 5 years and keeps getting bigger and bigger with new carers joining us for mutual support, a love of reading and good company! We have planned a trip to Tenby in August as well as our annual pilgrimage to Hay-on-Wye.
