Salford's carers got some well earned respite last week as De La Salle's students treated them to a free day of pampering.
"We loved it and everyone treated us very well, we all came away feeling really uplifted and fresh" says Joan Dickinson, chairperson of the Claremont, Weaste and Seedley Carers Drop In Group.
"The lovely students worked on us overseen by the trained staff, and everyone treated us with respect and kindness" she adds "De La Salle College hold pampering days and usually it is £35 for the day but we got it free. We had a pedicure, manicure, a lovely three course meal in the restaurant and our hair treated in the hair salon."
The day was organised by Hazel Blears, after the group's secretary, Irene Travis, had gone to see the Salford MP about help or funding for the carers group.
The Claremont, Weaste and Seedley Carers Group hold a drop in on Wednesdays between 12 and 3pm at Chandos Social Club, Chandos Grove, Weaste M5 5LJ.
