We had a wonderful time during Carers Week singing with lots of people in every one of the libraries in Ryedale. We sang in Pickering, Kirkbymoorside, Malton, Norton and Helmsley Libraries.
Lots of our regular singers came along, together with many new faces and we were lucky enough to be able to sing with some lovely children in Helmsley and Kirkbymoorside.
In each of the libraries we had a warm welcome from staff and volunteers and Carers Support had a representative at each of the sessions to help us to talk about the wonderful work of carers in our communities. Much of what carers do for loved ones and neighbours and friends goes unreported – Carers Week was a way of highlighting this vital work and hopefully recruiting new volunteers and helping people make new connections. A little bit of singing hopefully helped to remind us of how much good is done by carers everywhere.
Here are just a few pictures from our tour:
