DO YOU CARE for a loved one, are you being cared for, have you chosen caring for your career or do your neighbours depend on you during our winter cold snaps?
If you or someone you know in the Dungannon area should be recognised then enter the Funeral Services Northern Ireland Carers Awards 2013. The aim of the awards is to celebrate carers across Northern Ireland whose efforts in providing care to other people are particularly exceptional and deserving of recognition.
Beverley Brown, General Manager, Funeral Services Northern Ireland, said last year they were overwhelmed by the number of entries and the lengths some people in the Province go to when caring for others.
“Caring is at the heart of everything that we do here at Funeral Services Northern Ireland. It’s such a selfless task which is why we consider these awards to be so important in thanking carers in all our communities for the help they give others,” she said.
There are four categories open for entry submission: Paid Carer of the Year, Unpaid Carer of the Year, Voluntary Community Carer of the Year and Young Carer of the Year. The ceremony will take place on October 23 and each category winner will receive £100 in vouchers.
