TAYSIDE Carers' Support Project was represented last weekend at a Carers' Tea Party in sun-kissed Dundee City Square.

Support in Mind Scotland's newly-appointed Area Manager Kathleen Peter-Tennant and our Carer Involvement Worker Claire Forbes, enjoyed an excellent day meeting Carers of Dundee at the Carers' Tea Party.

In Dundee’s sunny city centre, they joined a variety of other organisations to provide information for, and raise awareness of unpaid carers from across the city.

The tea party featured a giant igloo, kids' face painting, fancy dress, food and, of course, tea! It also includes Songs from Alice, performed by Thomson-Leng Youth Musical Theatre. 

Carers Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges that carers face and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK.

The campaign is brought to life by the individuals and organisations who come together to organise activities and events throughout the UK, drawing attention to just how important caring is.

Carers in Perthshire and from across Tayside also held a Musical Evening in  Perth on Monday to mark Carers' Week.

The musical talents of carers and their family members included two accordionists, a saxophonist, three guitarists and four singers along with The Perth Barbershop Singers. An enjoyable evening was had by all.
