CROSSROADS Care is to benefit from being this year’s charity chosen by the Co-op to support.

To launch the year-long initiative, Co-op staff were joined in their Duke Street branch in Douglas by members of Crossroads and some of the people who are supported by the charity.

The celebration had a rocking theme with some visitors donning rock star outfits. Others turned their attention to culinary matters and rose to the occasion by baking cakes.

The event served a dual purpose by raising some cash for the charity at the same time.

The Crossroads charity is devoted to providing respite for people looking after someone with an illness or disability.

Thursday’s launch was part of a national support campaign for carers, with representatives of Britannia International also taking part in the programme.
