Carers Week takes place between June 8 and 14 and to mark the 50th anniversary of Carers UK, Sainsbury’s in Bury Park, Luton is inviting a number of local carers’ charities into the store to mark the milestone.

Run by Carers UK, Carers Week is an annual event designed to help raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges faced, and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK.

Sainsbury’s has supported Carers UK for five years. Ian Shannon, store manager, said: “Carers Week is a great opportunity to shine a light on what it means to be a carer, and the support available in the community.

“We would like to invite local charities who support local people who care for a disabled family member, or friend.

“It would be great to welcome local charities who offer such invaluable support to the carers who live within our local community.

“Several thousand carers live within Luton, many of whom shop at, or work for Sainsbury’s.”
