Carers Rights Day 2012 - 'Time Well Earned' Photographic Exhibition

Ashley Sutherland, carer and Friend of Tunstall Hill Committee, photographed on Tunstall Hill.To celebrate Carers Rights Day 2012, Sunderland Carers' Centre is hosting a photographic exhibition to highlight the importance of family carers taking a break from their caring roles.

The exhibition will feature photographs by Daniel Dale and give a fascinating insight to some of the hobbies and interests carers enjoy when they get those much needed breaks.

The private view will take place on Carers Rights Day, Friday 30th November from 12 noon to 3pm and at a later time of 4pm to 9pm at 'The Place' Gallery, Athenaeum Street, Sunderland SR1 1QX.

To attend the private view for either time contact Sunderland Carers' Centre on (0191) 549 3768 or email

The exhibition will then run from Monday 3rd to Friday 14th December.  'The Place' Gallery is open 9am to 4.30pm Monday to Thursday and 9am to 3.30pm on Friday.
