A group of hardworking local carers were made guests of honour at a recent community event, which was held during National Carers Week.
The event provided an opportunity to celebrate the hard work of carers who support their loved ones. It also marked the latest office opening by the national care provider Clarriots Care in Godalming, which will see high quality homecare provided to communities across the Surrey West area.
The evening, which was held in partnership with local charity Action for Carers, was a real community affair with free food for all, dancing to live music by the popular local band Alter Ego and the attendance of Godalming Duty Mayor, Cllr Nick Williams.
The owners of the new office, which is situated in Goldalming’s High Street, are husband and wife team, Joe Dockrill and Christina Katsanou.
Joe said: “We wanted to host an event in support of Action For Carers Surrey and we are delighted to be providing them with a cheque for £500. We want our business to make a difference to our community and there didn’t seem like a better place to start! Clarriots Care is all about a high standard of care and compassion to the most vulnerable and we will always be here to support the families who need us.”
Rachel Brennan, Senior Carer Adviser receiving the cheque on behalf of Action For Carers said “It has been a pleasure to celebrate carers week with Clarriots Care and we thank them for their generosity. Clarriots Care is an agency who demonstrate a sensitivity in the care they provide as they are willing to do that little bit extra for people in need. We hope to work alongside them at events that we are organising for carers and wish them the best of luck with their new business.”
Clarriots Care was established in 2008 and since then the company has grown rapidly and provides homecare services across the UK. The Surrey West office provides a wide range of homecare services to people across the local area.
