Care for a Cuppa: Wyn Higham

Win Higham PTKO

Wyn has cared for her husband Colin for 26 years, since he suffered a brain haemorrhage and stroke at the age of 46.

She now volunteers for Carers UK, and recently hosted a Care for a Cuppa event at a local community centre recently.

Wyn tells us all about how having a cup of tea and a slice of cake helped her make some great connections with other carers in her community...

The wonderful friendly atmosphere was perhaps the best thing, followed by the delicious cakes. A table with raffle prizes and information for carers had been in the centre all week, to allow people to buy tickets and collect booklets.

On the afternoon itself we had a tombola and handmade items for sale alongside tea, cakes and a whole lot of talking.

"It was so nice to see carers relaxing and enjoying themselves"

We made £160 for Carers UK which was wonderful and so rewarding. I helped to connect people in my community to the services and support that Carers UK offer and knowing that people, who may have come in that day not knowing what was out there for them, left being more informed. 

A wonderful feeling to know you’ve helped right where you live. Everyone went home happy and full of tasty cake, including me!
