Making Carers Visible and Valued!
As part of our planned activities to support carers as the country emerged from the national lockdown, we organised a virtual walk around Lancashire and Yorkshire throughout May. Encouraging carers and staff to get outside for their mental and physical wellbeing, our planned route covered 527 miles across 27 stages and took us to 45 places of interest across the region.
We garnered fantastic support for the fundraising event with 53 people taking part – 18 carers and 35 Cloverleaf staff. Together we covered an incredible 927 miles and managed to raise £560 towards the cost of a sanctuary day for our carers.
The activity also helped us to raise awareness of unpaid carers leading up to Carers Week 2021 with our supporting social media campaign across Instagram, YouTube and Facebook.
