We hosted three Christmas lunch celebrations this month, in Uckfield, Eastbourne and Hastings. All of them were packed to the rafters, and it was lovely to bring carers, cared-for people and volunteers together to say a much-deserved thank you to them for everything they do. Here are some photos of the celebrations!
Many thanks to the teams at The Highlands, The Langham and Coast Restaurant for providing wonderful service and delicious food. And a huge thank you to the Winkle Club, Hastings Round Table, John Jackson Charitable Trust and Mrs A Lacy Tate Trust who very kindly sponsored the lunches.
During the Hastings lunch we also held our raffle draw, for which we’d had a huge range of brilliant donated prizes. The raffle raised over £2500 which will help us continue to provide free support to unpaid carers in East Sussex.
Our office will be closed from 2pm on Christmas Eve and will reopen on Wednesday the 2nd January. All the best for Christmas and the New Year from everyone at Association of Carers!
