Community Chest March Winner

We're delighted to announce that Northamptonshire Carers were awarded our Community Chest fun for March.

Northamptonshire Carers offer comprehensive support services to Carers living in Northamptonshire, recognising their contribution to society and endeavouring to empower carers in improving their quality of life.

Dawn Panter at Northamptonshire Carers said “We've been supporting Carers since 1992. Carers often sacrifice their time, health and careers to support their loved-one. If Carers did not do what they do then the health and social care systems would fail overnight. Although there may be challenges, many Carers have a huge feeling of pride, love and self-fulfilment from the support they provide. We believe that by supporting Carers, we not only support them but also the wider society by making their caring roles more manageable and sustainable.”

Each month, one community cause, club or charity will be selected to receive £100 from Swansgate. So whether you're fundraising for a particular event or mission or would like some extra cash for your local club, make your nomination!

To nominate, fill out a card and post in the entry box by the Community Noticebox (in between Wilko & Home Bargains).You can nominate until the end of each month, where one nomination will be chosen to receive £100. The chosen cause will be announced on our website here and on our Facebook page at the beginning of the next month.
