Carers share their story on BBC Breakfast News

Charity News 5 September 2022

Carers from Wigan and Leigh have been filming with BBC News Breakfast this morning at Cafe Central in Leigh.

Tony and Josephine met with BBC presenter, Nina Warhurst whilst they filmed the live reaction to the announcement of the new Prime Minister.

Nina took the time to listen to both Tony’s and Josephine’s individual caring stories, what life is like for them as carers and what they feel the new Prime Minister needs to prioritise.

The footage will be aired on BBC Breakfast tomorrow morning – so please tune in! It was great to see local carers given the opportunity to have their views and opinions valued.

Tony and Josephine, on behalf of all carers in Wigan and Leigh – we sincerely thank you for being that voice for all us and sharing your stories. We know this isn’t is easy, and was incredibly emotive – we are beyond proud of you both!!!
