Sainsbury’s stores across the region will be supporting Carers Week 2016 next week (6-12th June).
Carers Week is an annual event, led by Carers UK, which aims to help raise awareness, highlight the challenges faced by carers and recognise the contribution carers make to families and communities. Sainsbury’s has supported Carers UK for the last six years.
Sainsbury’s Northfield has invited local charities that support carers into the store during Carers Week, which runs from Monday 6th until Sunday 12th June. They will be in store to talk about what work they do and provide details on support available for carers.
Northfield store manager, Helen Sanders, said: “Carers Week is a great opportunity to shine a light on what it means to be a carer and the support available in the community. We are looking forward to welcoming the carers groups into the Northfield store to find out more about what they do and I hope that our customers and colleagues find it both interesting and useful.”
Similar events will be held in other local Sainsbury’s stores.
