On Friday 21 November, the Carers Centre marked its 20th birthday at a Showcase event held at Sheffield Town Hall.

Carers came along to meet Centre trustees, staff and volunteers to enjoy an afternoon of celebration. Carers spoke movingly about the difference their involvement with the Centre made to their lives, and a volunteer and a trustee told us about why they had become involved and what they had got out of it.

We are very grateful to the Lord Mayor, Cllr Peter Rippon for hosting the event, Rony Robinson for interviewing the carers who spoke and everyone else who contributed.

The event has received some good coverage in The Star.
