Our amazing partnership with the Lowry Theatre in Salford really came up trumps on the 10th January as a party of 55 carers, family members & cared for had the opportunity to attend the sell out Christmas show CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG staring Jason Malford, Claire Sweeter & Phil Jupiter.
carers young & old attended and had an amazing night with very special treatment for a few with access issues.......they got boxes!!
Our group joined the whole audience as they clapped, whooped, booed and cheered as the evil child catcher was defeated, the very evil Baron & Baroness driven away and the heroic Potts family reunited with each other and the real star of the show CHITTY!!
The feed back from the carers was excellent, they really appreciated the opportunity and the service they received from the front of house staff who are all volunteers
As one of our young adult carers wrote, having taken her disabled father and brother, both of whom she is the sole carer for;
"Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the tickets to see CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG last night at the Lowry. We were in a Box an it was all very Posh!! Dad & Sam really enjoyed it, especially when they got ice cream!! Problem...Sam now wants a flying car haha!! Thank you"
So a massive thank you from all who attend & us at the Carers Centre to the Lowry for not only thinking of us but for all the incredible community work they do in our fantastic city.
