Britain’s Got Talent star Ella Shaw, who reached the semi-finals of last year’s competition, visited the Centre to help celebrate the Carers Link Lancashire AGM and performed songs from her new album ‘Imperfections’.
Over 100 people attended the ceremony in the Moscow Suite, to celebrate the ‘outstanding achievements’ of the charity over the past year. Organisers from Carers Link, Emma Logan and Rebecca Ormerod said that great feedback was received from an ‘amazing event with a fabulous turnout.’
Stories of how caring had affected their lives were shared by volunteers, carers and young carers as well as how Carer Link Lancashire services and support had helped them positively during their caring journey.
Ella told local reporters that she “Was blown away by what Carers Link do for carers and it was amazing to have heard some incredible stories of what they have done in the past.”
Carers Link Lancashire supports unpaid carers who provide help with practical household tasks, personal care and emotional support to a family member or friend who could not manage without that support. With over 8,000 carers registered throughout East Lancashire (with ages ranging from 7-101!), Carers Link Lancashire believe in a world where carers feel valued as individuals and for their contribution to society.
