GoodGym Deliver 1500 Leaflets for Sheffield Carers Centre

Yesterday, Sheffield Carers Centre got a huge helping hand from the wonderful people over at GoodGym. 23 people ran all the way to the Heeley City Farm Alternative Energy Centre (check them out, they’re really interesting) to deliver leaflets around Heeley. They had a great time running up and down the hills in the area. Some of them even took some leaflets home to do the next day! What superstars.

Christmas Message from Pauline Kimantas

Dear friends,

Seeing as this is my first Christmas at the Centre, I thought I would just put together a quick note wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I hope you’re all having a great time, enjoying good food and celebrating the end of 2017 well.

We’ve had a cracking year at the Carers Centre, with major changes taking place and a veritable horde of new staff joining. Scott, our new Volunteer Co-ordinator joined us in June, Claire joined our Carers Advisor Team in May, and Julie started with us in July. More recently, we said a fond farewell to Hilary Hull and Ron Davenport, and welcomed Noshee as our BME Carer Engagement worker and Adam as our new Communications worker.

Carers’ quilt unveiled!

At our AGM, held in December, we unveiled our carers’ quilt, made from squares made by carers themselves using a variety of craft techniques. The finished quilt is beautiful, and now takes pride of place in our large meeting room at Concept House.

Carers Quilt unveiled

At last our Carers Quilt is finished, and it was unveiled at our AGM on Friday 2 December.

Over fifty carers and former carers each contributed a square which represented their caring situation. We are immensely grateful to Sue Chantler, one of our volunteers, for putting it all together for us, taking on the mammoth task of single-handedly turning these squares into a stunning quilt, which has now taken pride of place on the Carers Centre meeting room wall.
