Carers from all over Uttlesford gathered at The Maltings in Dunmow for the annual Uttlesford Carers speaker's lunch last Tuesday.

More than 70 people attended the event where they enjoyed a buffet lunch and listened to a speech from guest speaker Imelda Redmond, chief executive of CARERSuk (of which Uttlesford Carers is a branch). Ms Redmond spoke about the organisation's history and the process of winning private members' bills in parliament and lobbying on behalf of carers across the UK.

Mari Hinton, organiser for Uttlesford Carers, said: "It was a very interesting talk about how CARERSuk has developed into a leading campaigning, policy and information organisation for carers." CARERSuk also provides support groups and time off for carers including trips away. For more details about Uttlesford Carers call Mari Hinton on 01371 875810.
