Learn how to Skype and enjoy a stress-busting massage at a series of free events organised by Carers Bromley to celebrate the 13th national Carers’ Week.

The group, funded by Bromley Council, are aiming to highlight the impact of caring on daily life through their series of events under the theme ‘prepared to care’.

Bromley has a higher aging population compared to the national average, with many suffering from disabilities and serious illness.

Lynne Powrie, chief executive of Carers Bromley, said: “Caring can be incredibly demanding and it’s important that we raise awareness of the local services that can help.

“To do this, Carers Bromley is running a programme of events during Carers Week to raise awareness and highlight the great contribution carers make to society.”

On Friday, June 14 there’s an Indian head massage and reflexology session available at Beckenham Beacon, in Croydon Road - with a treatment priced at £10.

Other highlights in the week include a walk around Chislehurst Common on June 12 from 11am, and an e-shopping and Skype workshop at the United Reform Chuch, in Widmore Road, Bromley on June 13 from 9.45am.
