On 18th November, 12 carers joined us on a trip to the Christmas Market on the South Bank.  Starting at the Royal Festival Hall, carers wandered between the food stalls, lights, gift kiosks and other attractions soaking up the atmosphere.

We had some lovely feedback that carers really enjoyd the opportunity to spend time together and the experience of doing something different, with several people saying they had not been to Central London for a long time and enjoyed the day out.

Our favourite quote was from Kelly, who told us ‘Thanks for a lovely afternoon last week.  I had such a great time and I couldn’t stop smiling all day.  It was so nice to meet some lovely people as I never get out of the house usually. I really appreciated it and definitely needed it, I’m looking forward to attending more in the future.’

We’re already planning more trips, but in the meantime, why not come along to one of our Christmas lunches on 12th and 13th of December? Email viktoria@carerslewisham.org.uk to find out more.
