Twenty members of the Stevenage Carers’ Cafe group enjoyed a lunch at the Fisherman Pub and Restaurant in Fishers Green recently.
The Group – all carers or former carers – meet every Monday from 10 am until 12 noon at the Crossroads Care Day Centre in Broad Oak Way, Stevenage. They enjoy a full programme of activities and occasionally go out for lunch as a treat.
Thanks to the recently introduced Carers’ Passport – a discount card available to unpaid family carers living in Stevenage – the carers can enjoy offers and discounts at a wide range of shops and outlets in and around the town including the Fisherman Public House.
Jo Wilkinson, Executive Assistant at Crossroads Care Hertfordshire North said “The discount card meant that the carers had a delicious lunch at a reduced price which all helps when you are caring. It was lovely to see the group relaxed and having such a good time.”
When asked about the scheme Peter McAdden, Manager of the Fisherman said “The Carers’ Passport is a superb scheme and since its launch it has attracted many existing and new customers and has been very well received. We are pleased to help carers in this way and give them a treat.”
