Funding for Shipley Carers' Resource

Shipley MP Philip Davies has welcomed a donation of more than £4000 to a Shipley charity supporting carers.

Asda Foundation have donated £4,188 to Carers’ Resource in Shipley, which provides support for young and old caring for relatives, friends or neighbours.

Asda’s Corporate Affairs Senior Director Chris Lowe said: “We are pleased to have been able to support this important cause in the local community after Philip raised the possibility of Asda meeting with Carers’ Resources last year. The donation will go towards renovations including decorating and new carpets, as well as buying a new set of chairs.”

Mr Davies said: “I am delighted Carers Resource have been given money, they do a fantastic job supporting all carers. As someone whose sister had to give up her job to become a full-time carer for my young niece who developed cancer, I know at first hand the challenges carers face, and how important the support carers’ resource provide.

“I am delighted that my former employers at Asda have recognised this.”
