Carer's Week 11th - 17th June
Supporting carers to be Healthy and Connected
On the run up to Carers Week we are raising publicity on Yorkshire Coast Radio to help us begin our local Pledge Support for Carers Campaign. Please listen to the radio to hear lots more about the support we provide to carers. We are seeking to connect with as many local businesses and organisations as we can to promote and celebrate the work of our unpaid Carers across our patch. Many of us will have experienced caring first hand and know how hard it is to balance everything in life - and we think this needs celebrating!
We Royally Care
Young Carer and Mum attend the Royal Wedding
What an amazing adventure for Harry and his mum, April. Thanks to the support and invitation from Scarborough Rotary Club and the North Yorkshire Lord Lieutenant, Harry and April went to the wedding of the year!
The whole weekend was over too fast but both Harry and Mum had a fantastic time travelling down and across London on the busiest weekend of the year to see the most memorable moment in recent history.
Battling crowds and traffic they arrived at Windsor Castle very early on the morning of the wedding to secure a great vantage point. They watched and celebrated the whole thing in the private grounds of the Castle, with a perfect view of those arriving to help Harry and Megan celebrate their big day.
Harry felt proud to wear his Number One, Sea Cadet’s uniform and Mum felt very special dressing-up for the occasion. It proved to be a very long and busy day but Mum commented ‘it was wonderful to be a part of history in the making; it has been an honour to be asked, thank you to the Rotary Club for giving us this opportunity’.
Harry and Mum secured a place at the front of the proceedings, having an excellent view of the celebrities arriving and the royals in their cars. They waved at the Royal carriage as Megan and Harry sailed close by them. The day included an interview with ITV (Harry was very excited to be on telly!) and a walk through the church where everything happened. April commented ‘The flowers smelt as beautiful as they looked’.
We are really thankful to all that helped make this happen.

With any purchases you make on Co-op own brand products, 1% comes to us.
If you do not have membership and would like to support us, please ask for more details in any Co-op store. You will be issued with a temporary card for which you pay a £1 membership. When your official card arrives in the post you will receive a £1 voucher to spend. You are then able to sign up to support us on-line here.
Please help if you can - it is a great opportunity for Carers Resource to raise extra funds so we can provide support for local unpaid family carers across Scarborough, Whitby and Ryedale. This enables us to continue to provide the vital service that we know our local carers need whilst caring for others.
Please help us spread the word and tell your family and friends too.
