CARERS will be able to watch a football match after being given free tickets by Portsmouth Football Club.

A total of 40 tickets have been offered to unpaid carers across the area through Crossroads Care South Central and the Carers Support Service, Chichester and Rural.

Crossroads Care helped secure the tickets and will provide alternative care arrangements where required for those carers attending the match.

Information and development manager Louise Spong said: “We know many carers who are unable to leave the person they care for, even for a short period. The offer of respite in the home for the cared-for person has been a real bonus in offering these tickets to our carers.”

Crossroads’ chief executive Eric Geddes said: “This was a fantastic opportunity which Portsmouth FC wants to support more frequently next season. There has been great enthusiasm, and we hope to offer the opportunity to more carers in the future.”
