After successfully receiving a carers’ grant from the Co-operative Group, an Ilkeston medical centre decided to celebrate by offering dedicated unpaid carers some nostalgic fun.

Littlewick Medical Centre on Nottingham Road has organised the 1940s-themed coffee morning to give present carers the opportunity to meet people in a similar position, listen to vintage music and enjoy a free buffet while the Derbyshire Carers Association Carer Transition Team offer free advice.

The medical centre has run regular coffee mornings for carers since July 2012 and decided to pursue that success in celebration of the carers.

A spokeswoman for the centre said: “We are going to do our best to make people feel vintage and sociable.”

The free event takes place at the centre on April 24 from 10am.
