Hello Everyone

Did anyone watch the Eurovision Song Contest?  Unfortunately, the UK did not get a point and came last.  However, it was fun, camp and very enjoyable, so better luck next time…

Just a few reminders

Don’t forget to enter your short story about your favourite day in the sun and there is a prize for the best submission. Email tony@ccth.org.uk

Keep an eye out for June’s E-Newsletter, beautifully edited by Danielle later this week – lots of information, Carers Week news, Carers Academy workshops and activities for the month of June and much more…

Keep well, wear a mask where possible, physically distance yourself when you can, and as I always say when offered the vaccine take it, I have had both my doses and feel better for it and my anxiety has greatly decreased.

Do you work and care for a loved? Do you want something new and exciting to do at the weekend? This group is open to all carers.

St. Margaret’s House in Bethnal Green are inviting carers from the Carer’s Centre Tower Hamlets to co-create an exciting new digital art project around the theme of care and caring for others, inspired by the children’s novel ‘The Borrowers’ by Mary Norton.

Carers will join the wonderful artists Kazuko Hohki and Milou Stella as care and imagination experts, using story-telling, craft, improvisation, textiles and more…
