THE Swindon Carers Centre received £8,000 in emergency funding.

The charity can now afford to keep its welfare and benefits service running for another year.

The money came from a Covid-19 Emergency Fund grant from Zurich Community Trust.

A spokesperson for the centre said: "We are delighted to be the recipients of a... grant.

"Thank you to SCC's Roy and Tim for always working so hard to make sure carers get the advice and support they need and deserve."
