Hosting Celebrating Carers is one of the highlights of our year here at the Carers’ Centre – our chance to really shine a light on our carers, and show why we are so passionate about supporting them. Even so, it isn’t cheap to host the awards, and we wouldn’t be able to make Celebrating Carers 2016 the great event it is without the support of 6 local businesses.
We’re delighted that Sirona Care & Health agreed to be our headline sponsor, making a generous donation to enable us to recognise the ‘unsung heroes’ in the local community. Sirona provides specialist community health and adult social care across Bath and North East Somerset, South Gloucestershire and surrounding area.
Janet Rowse, Chief Executive at Sirona, said the night was an opportunity to applaud carers for their selflessness. “Carers are the unsung heroes in health and social care…they are crucial and this event puts them centre stage where they deserve,” said Janet. “This is a special occasion for a special group of people and Sirona is proud to be supporting it.”
