Downpatrick – special day for carers

Location: Downpatrick, Northern Ireland

During Covid, those associated with the carers support group at Downpatrick Resource Centre have had additional challenges. The loved ones they care for have had their routines changed, with community centres, day centres being closed. This has put extra pressure on the carers and they have had little time to themselves and/or no respite. The funds you raise will be used to organise a spa/ relaxation day for those carers to make them feel special, valued and help give them some “me “ time. A morning of relaxation, followed by lunch would allow those carers to get respite from their caring duties and allow them to enjoy some time with others in a relaxed atmosphere.
