Raising awareness of Carers Week

Supermarket staff in Pocklington had fun raising the profile of Carers Week earlier this month.

Sainsbury’s, in The Balk, held a hook-a-duck competition and asked shoppers to guess the number of sweets in sweet cones.

The aim was to raise awareness of carers looking after ill, frail or disabled people in Pocklington.

Carers Week took place between Monday 10 and Sunday 16 June and both Sainsbury’s colleagues and customers had the opportunity to find out more about the local support available.

Sainsbury’s is one of the campaign’s main sponsors.
