We had a lovely time hosting Careline’s third monthly Coffee & Chatter morning at St Oswald’s Hospital in Ashbourne last Friday. Many of our members and volunteers attended as well as people from the local community. Along with our usual fair of homemade cakes and handmade items, we also had a lovely donation of cakes from Hatters Tea Parties (images below). We also held a raffle for a beautiful shaker style sewing box, lovingly handmade and kindly donated to us by Ryan Quince. If you didn’t get the chance to purchase raffle tickets this time round, don’t worry as we will be selling raffle tickets at each of our coffee mornings until the draw on October 12th.

Our next Coffee & Chatter morning will be Friday 11th May, 10am-12pm. So if you fancy a free cup of tea or coffee, and a slice of homemade cake, please add it to your diaries as we’d love to see you there!

Careline’s second monthly Coffee & Chatter morning, held at St Oswald’s Hospital in Ashbourne, was another great success! Many of our members and volunteers attended as well as people from the local community. We also held our 100 Club Spring Draw, raffled a lovely big Easter egg, kindly donated to us by Sue Brown at Tesco, Uttoxeter, and presented gifts to volunteers who have been with us for 10 years or more. So a fun and busy morning was had by all!

Our next Coffee & Chatter morning will be Friday 13th April, 10am-12pm. So if you fancy a free cup of tea or coffee, and a slice of homemade cake, please add it to your diaries as we’d love to see you there!
