Carers Discount Voucher Booklet Launched The Western Trust Carers Support Team are delighted to launch a book of discount vouchers for unpaid carers who are registered in the Trust’s carers database at the annual Carers Carol Services held at the Killyhevlin Hotel, Enniskillen on Thursday 7 December 2017 and the City Hotel, Londonderry on Wednesday 13 December 2017.
 
As part of the ‘Carer Friendly Communities’ initiative the Carers Support Team and representatives from the business community have developed a book of discount vouchers which provides a range of offers from 34 local businesses across the Western Trust area including Limavady, Londonderry, Strabane, Castlederg, Omagh, Fintona, Derrylin and Enniskillen.
 
Commenting on the launch of the Carers Discount Voucher Scheme, Cathy Magowan, Western Trust Carers Support Coordinator said: “We are delighted with the response from the local business community who have kindly agreed to support the Carer Friendly Communities campaign in the Western Trust area.  The booklet of vouchers are currently being sent out along with the latest edition of the Carers Newsletter to 4,293 carers who are registered on our database.  We would encourage carers to support their local businesses and enjoy the many discounts from shops, hotels, restaurants and tourist attractions; beauty and hair treatments which are included in the booklet, as a token of our appreciation to the dedication and care they provide to their loved ones every day.”
 
Cathy added: “I would like to thank our Carer Development Workers, Geraldine McLaughlin and Louise Gilheany for their hard work and commitment in bringing this wonderful initiative to fruition.”
