Boots the Chemist and Gateshead Carers Association (GCA) have organised their first joint health awareness day for carers, who live or work in Gateshead, on Friday 30 September 2011.
The free event will feature advice on vitamins and health, raffles, make-overs, goodie bags and refreshments.
It takes place between 11am and 2pm at Gateshead Carers Association, 11 Regent Terrace. Gateshead. NE8 1LU.
The event is part of an ongoing partnership between the pharmacy division of Boots the Chemist at Gateshead MetroCentre, and GCA.
The relationship has already resulted in a number of outreach and awareness-raising sessions at the Metrocentre for staff and visitors in order to attract people, who otherwise may not have identified themselves as carers.
Mandy Quinn, GCA Information and Advice Officer, said: “We are delighted to be working with one of the biggest names on the high street to offer information, advice and support to as many carers as possible in Gateshead.
