......Once again our Carers Pampering Day held in recognition of Carers Week was a huge success. It was held at the Niland Centre in Bushey and we pampered in excess of 80 Carers who enjoyed various treatments including Reflexology, Reiki, Shoulder Massage to name but a few. We are very fortunate to have a dedicated team of volunteer therapists who commit to the day each year, working hard, but can all see how beneficial it is to our Carers and how much they enjoy the experience. Some pictures of the day can be seen in the gallery.
