Supporting unpaid heroes who care for their loved ones

We have shown our support to Carers of Wakefield and District as part of National Carers Week, by donating 20 of our sweet Treat Boxes for carers and their loved ones to enjoy at home.

The Carers of Wakefield and District organisation, support unpaid carers who look after elderly, disabled or seriously ill relatives and friends. This year they are unable to celebrate National Carers week with their usual annual carers break due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The event usually provides a welcome respite, and allows carers to recharge their batteries and relax from their caring role for a short time.

Carol Topham and Kay Sanderson, Carer Support and Liaison Workers collected the Treat Boxes from us this morning, to make a special door step delivery to the carer network.

“Our carer network and their loved ones will be absolutely delighted to receive these lovely Treat Boxes and we are very thankful for Blacker Hall Farm Shop for their generosity.”

We wanted to treat local unpaid carers during this uncertain time. We know that they are all working so hard behind closed doors to support their loved one and we are delighted to have the opportunity to recognise their dedication.
