Do you know a carer who deserves a special thank you?
For the third year, LloydsPharmacy is hosting the National Carers Awards to recognise the huge contribution that carers make.
It's quick and easy to nominate a carer – just complete the online form, or pick up a printed copy from your local LloydsPharmacy.
In total there are six awards, five National Carers of the Year and one LloydsPharmacy Caring Colleague of the year. Nominations open today until midnight Thursday 31 March 2016. Please note that the awards are open to carers in England, Wales and Scotland.
Winners will be announced at a gala awards dinner held at the Millennium Hotel, Mayfair London on 26 May 2016, and will receive a night’s stay in a luxury hotel and enjoy an all-expenses paid city break in London with one guest each, and £1,000 high street vouchers to spend.
Heléna Herklots, our Chief Executive, said:
“Caring will touch each and every one of us at some point in our lives, whether we begin caring for a loved one or whether we need care ourselves. The realities of caring for a loved one can be challenging – we hear every day from carers who are facing emotional, physical and financial difficulties as a result of their caring role. But we also hear about how rewarding caring for a family member or friend can be. It is important that we take the time to recognise the vital contribution that carers make to families, our communities, and wider society. These awards allow us to recognise and celebrate the unseen support that carers up and down the country provide.”
