Carers are Awesome

Two of our carers – Edward Rhodes (age 8) and Brian Eskriett age (89) helped us to celebrate the opening of our new Skipton office today.  The ribbon proved to be extra strong, but they managed to cut through it and enjoyed cake and refreshments afterwards.   Thank you Edward and Brian.  Carers are Awesome.
