Respite trip on Hazel

Just a snap from last weeks trip with The Dream Centre Carers Support group, Droylsden. Lovely feedback received from them too.

Caring can often be stressful, isolating and can feel like the most unappreciated job in the world. Meeting with other carers can help by offering mutual support, friendship and advice on the issues that carers face. The Dream Centre Carers Support group can help by offering mutual support, friendship and advice on the issues that carers face. Taking some time out with others that understand and can help carers recharge their batteries.

This is Hazel doing what she does best, giving folk a relaxing time on the canal and promoting well-being, but a slight twist in that this is the first trip she has had giving respite for carers, a new avenue where she can help people. Let’s hope she can do more of these.

SUMMER NEWSLETTER

This should now be in your in-box, or snailing it’s way in the Royal Mail system if you requested a paper version.

If you are expecting one and don’t receive it let me know at membership@wcbs.org.uk, but before that please check down the back of your sideboard for that application form & cheque that you know you sent last October.

Bookable Trips

I have put some of our positioning trips on eventbrite and can these be booked on a per-person basis.

These are using what would otherwise be an unused journey leg, so you will be helping out the charity financially as well as having an enjoyable and relaxing day out yourselves.
