A TEAM of volunteers from British Gas’s Trafford office have been showing their support for the borough's carers by getting up close and personal with some paint and rollers.

The volunteers took a day out of the office, put on their decorating clothes and spent some time this week transforming rooms at Trafford Carers Centre into dedicated space for carers.

The group refurbished a first floor room into a young carers space, which is a place for young carers can relax and take a break, as well as do their homework, meet with other young carers and get help and support from staff at the carers centre.

A top floor space, used for providing alternative therapy sessions, such as massage and reflexology, was also repainted and refreshed, with paint donated by B&Q Stretford.

Staff from British Gas were able to support Trafford Carers Centre as part of their employee volunteering scheme, 'people power'.
