The 20th annual Carers Week was held recently, a campaign that aims to raise awareness of carers at a national, regional and local level. 
It is estimated that carers save the United Kingdom economy £119 billion a year, with one in eight adults in the role today. 
As part of this scheme, Richard Cross of Carers UK visited the Spalding branch of Sainsburys to bring attention to the campaign and to share information about local support. 
Speaking about the visit, store manager Paul Bryan said: “Carers play such an important role in the community.
“We are proud to be working with Carers UK to highlight the support that is available to people in Spalding and the surrounding areas.”
