Thanks for efforts

A COFFEE morning in aid of Scarborough and Ryedale Carers Resource raised a welcome £465.

The charity’s chief officer, Elizabeth McPherson, thanked all those involved in the event.

She said: “I would just like to say a very big thank you to the four volunteers who organised the very successful coffee morning at Snainton Village Hall for Scarborough and Ryedale Carers Resource, raising a massive £465. Their never-ending commitment, enthusiasm and support has been invaluable to the charity.

“The work this small dedicated team of volunteers do in helping keep our information resource up to date directly benefits many local carers.

“This event was planned to link in to Carers Week on June 13 to 19, with the theme The True Face of Carers.”

“Ensuring we keep the profile of carers high in the public arena is very important especially in this time of austerity and cuts in public services.”
