Dundee Football Club has received a Respitality certificate for making a donation to Dundee Carers Centre.
The club donated a season ticket to the centre’s short break services.
The service aims to give unpaid carers a break away from home, allowing them to “pursue their hobbies once again or just a chance to rest up and recharge their batteries”.
Breaks are tailored to carers and their needs.
Jonny McInally, commercial manager at Dundee Football Club, was given the certificate at Dens Park.
Christine Hope, support broker at Dundee Carers Centre, said: “Respitality is a Scottish Government-run project that we are part of.
“Originally, it was for hotels to let carers stay on quiet nights and it’s been expanded so lots of companies in Dundee now support the carers centre.
“Local businesses have gifted the service with hotel stays, vouchers and hair cuts.
“The gifts are allocated to carers who would benefit from them.
“The Dundee FC season ticket will be given to a carer who may have gone to matches regularly in the past, to give them an opportunity to get out and about and maintain their carer role.”
The Respitality Pilot has been established across 10 local authority areas in the country and is administered by Shared Care Scotland.
