Liverpool Carers Centre hosts 'Our Gift' production


Liverpool Carers Centre hosts 'Our Gift' production

 

On 29th June, Liverpool Carers Centre hosted a production called ‘Our Gift’.  The play was written by Andrew Rimmer, directed by Kevin Foott and starred Jackie Connolly as Elizabeth, Allan Willams as Dudley and Cassie Richardson as Emily. 

The play told the story of Elizabeth and Dudley who are two of the 200,000 grandparents raising their grandchildren in the UK.  Not only does their granddaughter Natalie have highly complex special needs and autism but they are also both battling their own declining health.  ‘Our gift’ cleverly used humour and emotion throughout to highlight the many issues faced by grandparent carers.

 The play was well attended with around 50 people in the audience made up of both carers and staff.  After the production, there was also a fantastic opportunity for people to participate in a question and answer session. 

On behalf of our Carers Centre we would like to thank the team for their excellent performances – we hope to see you again soon!
