Market Traders Support Charity

Market traders in Shrewsbury have got behind a new scheme to provide extra support for the 30,000 carers in the county.

The I-Care Card, organised by the Carers Support Service of Shropshire Rural Community Council, is a joint scheme with shops and businesses throughout the region to provide discounts for the hidden army of family carers who look after relatives, friends or neighbours, while at the same time promoting the wide and varied range of products and services on offer in the county.

Signing up for the scheme this week were several traders at The Market Hall, in Shrewsbury and spokesperson Julia Wenlock said: “Family carers, who often suffer financial loss as a result of becoming a full time carer, can register for these identity cards and we are delighted to be offering them various offers and discounts and to be supporting the scheme.”
