Yesterday I did an interview with ITV Wales for Carers UK to highlight the Text Santa programme on ITV on Friday 21/12 which aims to raise funds for 6 nominated charities.
Please help raise as much money as you can for Text Santa as Carers UK supports carers of pwme too.
This is the piece Carers UK have written up on their website about me and us. I will post the link to the tv interview when it becomes available.
As promised here is the link to the interview.

Being a full-time carer
Sylvia Penny talks about being a full-time carer for her son David, who has dyspraxia and Asperger’s syndrome; and her daughter Michelle, who has severe M.E. She also cares for her elderly mum. Carers Wales says carers need to be able to talk to people who understand their situation, and access services that enable them to take time off.
