Re gift and help raise funds for your Carers Centre
We have all received gifts that we are not going to use and that we put in a cupboard and forget about until we have a de- clutter.
Why not free up that much needed space by donating your unused presents for the Carers Centres Tombola stand. All monies raised will help to fund the delivery of training and activities for carers.
Please note: unfortunately we are only able to accept unused items.
Donations can either be left the Carers Centre, Frederick Street, Hindley or our satellite office at Marsh Green Library, Harrow Road, Marsh Green.
For more information please contact the carers centre on 01942 705959.
