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.

CupofcaringCF400Recent 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:

The Network Norwich & Norfolk website has been published for over 13 years now and we have an established team of professional journalists covering the activities, organisations and churches which make up the county’s Christian community. Our whole purpose is to support that community by daily providing accurate, unbiased stories and features.

To pay for that service, we rely on our partner organisations, advertisers and readers to, in turn, support us financially. We want to keep the website free for everyone to access and continue to be able to pay for writers to produce the content you can enjoy every day.

We would like to ask you to consider supporting our work and suggest you might want to make a small regular donation of just £1 a week and become one of our 100 Friends, or a larger one-off or annual amount.
