George Atkinson, 26, from Yew Tree Gardens, won the top prize in the Life Outside Caring category in the Carers UK creative writing and photography competition, with his photograph of an amazing sunset outside of his front door.

Michael Shann, head of membership and volunteering at Carers UK, said: “At some point in our lives, many of us will care for a loved one or need that care ourselves, yet it remains a hidden issue.

“I hope that these poems, stories and photos will shine a light on the enormous contribution carers make and ensure more people are aware of the support that Carers UK provides.”

The Carers UK creative writing and photography competition invites the general public and the country’s 6.5 million unpaid carers to submit entries depicting what it’s like to support a loved one who is older, disabled or seriously ill.
