IN GOOD VOICE: Local carers charity gets funding boost from Stanton Cross Award

Local carers charity, Northamptonshire Carers has been named as the latest recipient of the Stanton Cross Community Award, giving them funds to run vital services such as their Carers Choir.

The Stanton Cross Community Award makes a quarterly donation of £1,000 to organisations who would benefit from extra funding for their work in the local community. The sixth organisation to win the award, Northamptonshire Carers provide support for carers of all ages and needs, including some as young as just 5 years old.

The award of £1,000 will help to fund Northamptonshire Carers’ Wellingborough-based Carers Choir and Carers Wellbeing courses, which have been set up to help local carers to forge new friendships, increase their confidence, and to reduce stress and isolation.
