S Norfolk community project supports carers
Cup of Caring, part of The Hub Community Project in Wymondham are recognised for the support they give those who are caring for someone and the person they are caring for.
Recent funding received have enabled the group to not only run an interesting programme of events, they have also been able to support many families and carers during 2014 by providing transport to their regular meetings, supporting a family with two people with disabilities, whose mother, their carer, was in Papworth having heart surgery by driving them all to Papworth on two occasions, taking the group to see the matinee performance of Joseph and his Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, including 6 people in wheelchair spaces with their companions amongst the 36 in the group and a Christmas meal provided by the local Waitrose store.
"Carers always enjoy the opportunity to get together and chat with others, four of the people who attend the group have been bereaved during the time they have been attending and they still come along to support other people as they are all in a good position to really understand how it feels to be a carer" said group leader Libby Creber.
The group meets on the second and last Thursday each month at The Hub in Wymondham, for more details: www.hubproject.org.uk
