Carers4Carers Afternoon Tea

On August 18th Carers4Carers served afternoon tea to guests at Kineton Village Hall. The group was assisted this year by a team of twelve 17 year olds from the National Citizen Service as part of their community challenge. Earlier in the month they had met with us to find out about the group, who we are, what we do and why we do it. They met members and learnt a little of what it is like to be a family carer. Three days before the tea, they held a campaign in Stratford-upon-Avon. They made members of the public aware of our group and talked to them about carer issues. They raised nearly £100 to pay for the costs of the tea. They asked those they met to write a message for carers which they then stuck on to a heart and brought along to the tea, something that our members really appreciated.

On the day of the tea they did the shopping, brought home-made cakes, prepared the sandwiches and set out all the other food, made a food hamper for a raffle, prepared the hall with all the tables and decorated it. They then served the tea, mingled amongst the guests and three of them entertained us at the piano. Everyone was extremely impressed by this wonderful team of youngsters who put their hearts and souls into their community challenge and helped us raise £350 which will enable us to treat our carers to an outing as contribute to our running costs.

Our next meeting will be held in Kineton Village Hall on Friday 28th October when Karen Swan, who also worked with our NCS team, will be helping us to ‘Let off steam’. For more details about the group please contact Gillian Grason Smith phone 01926 640203 or 07947 893504 or visit our website www.carers4carersonthefosse.org.uk
