Our Town Awards Carers Champion is Peter Elliot

Carers,Latest News 12 October 2023

We are thrilled to announce that Carer, Peter Elliot won an award at the 2023 Wigan Council ‘Our Town Awards’.

Peter carers for his wife, Karen who is living with MS. He’s chairman of the Wigan MS Therapy Centre Ltd too, advocating for others affected.

Peter has dedicated so much of his time to raising awareness of MS, locally in Wigan and providing a safe space for people living with MS and their carers. The MS Therapy Centre helps with advice, therapies, information and much more – to have this locally for people living in Wigan is such a vital resource – people don’t have to travel far to receive support. None of this could be achieved without the vital fundraising Peter has achieved over the years.

We are so lucky to have someone like Peter living in our Borough. Caring can be very demanding – but to lead a successful charity at the same time – is truly inspirational.

Special mentions to other nominees in the category – we sincerely congratulate you all on your nominations.

Congratulations Peter from us all at WLCC.
