MALE carers across the district are being offered a chance to get back to nature.

A free bushcraft day is being staged by charity Carers' Resource.

Participants will learn skills including fire lighting, wilderness cooking and shelter building, take part in natural crafts and woodland sports, and study their natural surroundings.

The event, which takes place on Baildon Moor on Monday, September 4, is being held as part of the Carers' Resource Men Care Too project.

Goran Selby, for the project, says: "We are delighted to be organising this exciting bushcraft day for male carers, which will bring them closer to nature and teach them essential survival skills. It’s also an opportunity to chat with other male carers and enjoy a well-earned break from their caring roles."

The session, which will be led by an experienced bushcraft instructor and survival safety trainer, is open to any male carer registered with Carers’ Resource.

All necessary equipment is provided and light refreshments will be available throughout the day.

Places at the event are limited.

The Men Care Too project is being run as part of the Carers Trust's #MakingCarersCount programme.
