THE charity Crossroads in West Anglia celebrated its 21st birthday this month with a special cake cut by Dame Norma Major.

The charity - which uses the slogan "caring for carers" - is the region's leading provider of support and respite care, providing people who care for their loved ones with a well earned break.

The occasion was marked with a seminar at Hemingford Pavilion in Hemingford Grey with a panel of speakers, including Andrew Lansley MP, shadow secretary of state for health, and the chief executive of the charity, Dr Helen Brown.

The charity says demand for its services is at an all-time high. Last year West Anglia Crossroads provided more than 41,000 hours of care.
