Walk for carers will support carers in Coventry

Coventry Editorial 26th May, 2024   0

CARERS Trust Heart of England and Carers Trust Solihull have teamed up to host a ‘Walk for Carers’ in June.

Taking place at Packington Estate on June, 9, the walk marks the launch of carers week – a national scheme aiming to highlight challenges carers face.

There will be a four mile walk around the estate as well as a three-quarter mile walk which is wheelchair and pushchair friendly.

Each step taken will support carers in Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire.

The two trusts are both network partners of Carers Trust, which supports carers and families by providing care support services.

Carers Trust are celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, the walk marks the beginning of the celebrations which will continue at the Carers Award ceremony later that week.

To take part in the walk there is currently an early bird offer of £8 per person, while children under 16 can participate for free.

Sarah Wakeman, fundraising and business development manager at Carers Trust Heart of England, said: “We’re incredibly excited to be hosting our ‘Walk for Carers’ alongside Carers Trust Solihull.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for the local community to come together to support carers, and enjoy what promises to be a wonderful day at Packington.

“There are over 20,000 unpaid carers known to us in Coventry and Warwickshire, each working tirelessly to support someone they care for. “Each step taken during this walk will help support these extraordinary carers and the people that they care for.

“United we stand, together we walk.”
