Local home care company Home Instead supported Carers’ Resource at their recent craft afternoon hosted at Lister House in Ripon. The event was just one of the many regular coffee afternoons that Carers’ Resource organises to provide support and respite to all carers in the community who look after a family member or friend.
Tea, coffee and delicious cakes were served whilst everyone relaxed, chatted and learnt how to make unusual gifts out of commonplace everyday items, such as leaves, pebbles and fish bones! There was also a talk on stained glass and an opportunity to purchase some of the items on display.
Home Instead supported the raffle at the event and helped raise much needed funds for Carers’ Resource. Sheena Van Parys from Home Instead commented;” It was great to be able to attend and support the craft afternoon, Carers’ Resource do such fantastic work and it was a great opportunity for us to show our support.”
