CARERS will enjoy a well-earned break at Pompey’s home match with Crystal Palace thanks to a new initiative.

Crossroads Care has teamed up with Pompey to offer its carers 30 tickets for the match on April 17.

It will give them an opportunity to recharge their batteries away from the strains of caring for loved-ones.

One carer delighted to take up the opportunity is Tony Murphy of Bracklesham Bay in West Sussex.

Tony, who will be celebrating his 71st birthday on the day of the match, looks after his wife Roseena round the clock.

She suffers from Pick’s Disease, a rare form of dementia.

He said: ‘Crossroads are a life saver. Without them I wouldn’t survive. It would mean my wife would have to permanently go into a nursing home and it’s my intention to keep her at home until I can.’

Crossroads chief executive Eric Geddis thanked Pompey for their support.
