Carers are being invited for a free pamper session at an event later this morning.
Havering Council is inviting people who look after a relative, friend or neighbour to an event at the Salvation Army in High Street, Romford.
Visitors to the event, which runs from 11am till 5pm, will be able to get information and advice and make the most of free refreshments, a buffet and a goody bag for carers.
The council is running the event in partnership with Havering Mind as part of Carers Week, which started on Monday and ends on Sunday.
Cllr Wendy Brice-Thompson, cabinet member for adult social services and health, said: “Carers are among the most selfless people in our community, giving up their time to care for their loved ones, and they often forget to take time for themselves.
“This event is a great opportunity for them to do just that, with useful information on hand as well as some pampering. Our community wouldn’t be the same without carers, and we must show them how much they are valued.”
