Sweet treat for carers

12 June 2014

Danny Bell and Jill Williams from Sainsbury Ponteland

Carers enjoyed a sweet treat courtesy of Sainsbury's in Ponteland as we marked Carers' Week at the Alan Shearer Centre with a free cuppa and cake.

Store manager, Danny Bell, together with colleague, Jill Williams, visited the centre on Wednesday to bring free scones, muffins and cakes to serve with teas and coffees at Browne's Café.

It was a lovely day to spend time outside around the grounds at the Alan Shearer Centre and some guests took the opportunity to have their treats al fresco on the patio.

Afterwards Danny said: "We've had a fantastic day learning about the Centre and having the chance to meet the guests and colleagues."

Carers' Week is a national annual awareness campaign celebrating and recognising the contribution made by the UK’s 6.5 million carers who look after an ill, frail or disabled family member or friend.
