Lean On Me - A Song for Carers
Event Date: Sat April 27 2013
We are hosting a flashmob event at Sainsbury’s supermarket in Melksham, Wiltshire to raise awareness of the needs of unpaid family Carers as well as to try and fundraise for our charity’s services.
We have been Sainsbury’s, Melksham’s Charity of the Year and this will end our year’s partnership.
We have a musical theatre group taking the lead in the flash mob but we would love extra volunteers to sing in the aisles to get us as much attention from shoppers as we can.
We will be singing ‘Lean On Me’ which features words which fit well with the notion of what our charity does - provides a listening ear and a shoulder to ‘lean on’ for people who are caring for a family member or friend who cannot manage alone due to long-term illness, disability, sensory impairment, substance misuser or eating disorder.
Our charity is there for people to have a break, get some information or just sound-off to when they’re under the strains and pressures of caring for someone.
Please come along and help us raise more awareness so Carers know that help is out there.
