Carers and friends celebrate 25 years of the Carers Centre

On Friday 29 November, over 100 people – carers, professionals and friends of the Carers Centre – enjoyed a day of fun activities, delicious afternoon tea and a suitably special venue to celebrate 25 years helping unpaid carers in Sheffield.

The Lord Mayor of Sheffield opened the event and gave a great speech recognising the amazing contribution of unpaid carers and the support that the Carers Centre provides. The birthday candles were blown out and people enjoyed the grand hospitality of the Cutlers’ Hall before having taster sessions from a range of businesses and activities listed on our Carer Card.
