Selfless heroes who have cared for loved ones all year round were treated to a day of pampering for themselves by St Francis Hospice last week.
The charity’s Family Support Services Team invited carers to sit back, relax and enjoy a scrumptious three-course Christmas lunch at its premises in Broxhill Road, Havering-atte-Bower.
“We know that many carers are never waited on and this is our opportunity to look after them for a few hours and give them a well-deserved treat,” said Briony Townshend, who organised the event alongside fellow social worker Sandy Lawless.
Sandy added: “We send a letter out to all our carers inviting them to come and enjoy a special treat.
“We recognise the huge contribution carers make to society, which very often is 24-hours a day, seven days a week.
“And this is our way of saying thank you for everything they do as we could not do the job we do without them.”
