Provost Helen Moonie shows her support for Prestwick Carers Day
South Ayrshire Provost Helen Moonie showed her support for Prestwick Carers Day when she stopped in at the 65 Club in Prestwick where an event was held in support of the many people in the community who care for loved ones who are older, disabled or seriously ill.
With 1 in 8 adults across the UK providing care for family and friends, and many young carers in communities looking after parents or other loved ones when no one else can, carers need supporting.
To show local carers they are appreciated a carers event was organised in conjunction with Crossroads South Ayrshire and South Ayrshire Carers Centre and supported by Prestwick Business Association , Prestwick North and South Community Councils, Prestwick Civic Pride Partnership, Prestwick Rotary and many others.
If you are a carer or know of a carer who could do with support contact South Ayrshire Carers Centre on 01292 263000.
