Local Facebook group raises £1,050 for Carers Centre

Generous members of a local Facebook group have raised over £1,000 for Sheffield Carers Centre through their Christmas fundraising appeal. The group, Pictures of Sheffield Old and New has over 38,000 members who post and admire photographs of the city, its residents and wildlife. The fundraising drive was the initiative of Hedley Bishop, who founded the group, and chooses a different charity for its festive appeal each year.

Merry Christmas!…and some seasonal information

From everyone here at Sheffield Carers Centre we wish you a very Merry Christmas!

If you’re a carer, thank you for your amazing hard work over the last year and we hope that you get to have a bit of fun and a break over Christmas. For all the professionals and members of the public who have worked with us to improve awareness and support for unpaid carers – thank you and enjoy the festivities.

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.
