Lewisham carers celebrated with 25th anniversary tea party by MP

I was invited along to this Lewisham Carers 25th Anniversary Tea Party hosted by Heidi Alexander MP – and have now been asked to help with their fundraising efforts to support more carers in Lewisham.

CARERS who provide a “life-line” in Lewisham were celebrated with an afternoon tea hosted by MP Heidi Alexander.

The tea party marked the 25th anniversary of charity Carers Lewisham which supports those caring for friends and relatives with mental and physical illnesses.

There are around 22,000 carers in Lewisham and the charity is fundraising to support them with its anniversary project Challenge 25.

Chief executive of Carers Lewisham Diana Jones Chief Executive of Carers Lewisham said: “We are really grateful to Heidi for organising this event and for her support of carers and Carers Lewisham since becoming one of our local MPs.”
