About 40 carers were treated to afternoon tea in recognition of their work looking after relatives.

Carers Resource laid on the meal, entertainment and social activities at Keighley Rugby Union Club in Utley.

The charity invited carers in Keighley, whom it had provided with help, advice, training or support in the past.

Carers Resource spokesman Carolyne Coyle said the session was funded by Keighley Rotary Club.

She added: “It was the usual afternoon tea, with scones, jam, cream and cakes.”

Carers played bingo and listened to singing by Beechliffe School students.

She added: “It was to give carers a break because for many people, caring is a full-on 24/7 job. This session let them get together with other carers, sit back and be waited on.”
