Jingle Juggle

Jingle Juggle Header

Christmas is notoriously a busy time in everyone’s calendar from buying and wrapping the gifts to the everyday chores of going to work or school, homework or housework . Can you imagine if you had the responsibility of caring for someone who couldn’t manage without you, trying to juggle their health & wellbeing with their own and then adding the Christmas rush on top?

This December why not put yourself in the shoes of a carer and challenge yourself to take part in Trafford Carers Centre Jingle Juggle; from the Elf-Scapade to wearing a festive jumper.
