This week, Wessex Archaeology presented a £100 cheque to Carer Support Wiltshire to fund their excellent work with local carers.
Last Christmas, for the second year in a row, WA sent a Christmas e-card to our friends and colleagues in place of traditional paper cards. This enabled us to donate the money saved to four charities nominated by our regional offices.
The Salisbury office chose to donate to Carer Support Wiltshire, an independent charity established to provide support to carers living in Wiltshire. The £100 cheque was delivered this week by Laura Joyner, our Community & Education Officer and was gladly received by Senior Support Worker, Diana James who said “thank you to everyone at Wessex Archaeology for thinking of us. This money will go towards funding our Carers Cafe in Salisbury and our counselling service. Both of which provide carers with the opportunity to meet and talk about their caring duties and get tips and advice on how to cope and manage in that caring role. Thank you!”
