Show puts carers in the spotlight

Have your say

CARERS will celebrate their creative skills at a special show.

Sunderland Carers’ Centre has organised the city’s first ever talent show especially for the thousands who devote their time to looking after ill or disabled family members or friends.

Carers Have Talent Show will take place on Friday, June 13, at Washington Arts Centre in Biddick Lane, Fatfield, and will bring to a close a week of events to mark national Carers Week 2014.

As well as carers performing on stage, an array of their art, craft and photographs will be on display.

Graham Burt, chief executive officer of Sunderland Carers’ Centre, said: “There are over 32,000 carers in the city and it is so important that these carers are able to have time away from their caring responsibilities and to do things that they enjoy.”
