Carers and loved ones receive and decorate memory boxes at coffee morning

A carers coffee morning held in Selby saw carers and their loved ones decorate memory boxes to take home and keep special memories and items inside.

Eleven people attended the coffee morning – which is run weekly by local charity Carers’ Resource – and each received a memory box to paint during the event.

Amy Morton, a Selby locality carer worker at Carers’ Resource, helps run the coffee morning.

She said: “I hope the boxes will help bring back memories for the carers and the people they support.

“It was a fun activity and everyone really enjoyed it.”

The coffee morning, which takes place at Selby Bowling Club on Mondays from 11am to 1pm, is for carers, but some carers do bring along the people they care for.

It is a great chance for carers to meet new people, have a chat and a cup of tea or coffee with biscuits.

The group is free, although any donations are greatly appreciated.

If you’re interested in attending or have any questions, email Amy at or call 07512321259.
