Thank you to everyone who came along to support our Christmas Coffee Morning last Friday, where we raised a whopping £2052!

Everyone agreed what a lovely morning it was. As well as raising funds, it was an opportunity for our members to meet some of the volunteers that they speak to regularly on the phone, over a cup of tea and a mince pie. The Ashbourne Singers kindly came along too and entertained everyone with carols around the tree.

We’re very grateful to Whites of Ashbourne and Wyaston Nursery who generously provided items for our Christmas Raffle; to Claire Astbury for baking the delicious mince pies and the Ashbourne Singers for helping us to get into the festive spirit! To the staff at St Oswald’s Hospital and of course to our wonderful volunteers and members who always support our fundraising events by donating items, helping to organise or just by coming along on the day.




Join us for a mince pie from 10am on Friday the 5th of December, at our Christmas Coffee Morning in St Oswald’s Hospital, Ashbourne.

We’ll have delicious cakes and preserves for sale; you’ll find some super Christmas present ideas at our  handicraft and  jewellery stalls; There will be a tombola, plus the opportunity to buy a ticket for our Christmas raffle – as always we have some fantastic prizes on offer including a luxury hamper worth £100, a £30 voucher for dinner at Whites of Ashbourne, a wine hamper, a basket of fruit and vegetables and a festive pot plant from Wyaston Nursery. We’re also very lucky to have the Ashbourne Singers coming along, to sing  carols around the tree.

Do pop in to see us for this fun festive morning and help to raise some important funds for our free telephone befriending service.


last night of the proms


Careline is  thrilled to have been presented with a cheque for £1000 by Ashbourne Rotary Club, during its recent Last Night of the Proms concert.

It was a thoroughly enjoyable  evening of uplifting music, which also demonstrated how lucky Ashbourne is to have so much musical talent.

Ashbourne Town Band conducted by Russell Bevin, led the Prom. Also taking part were popular local soprano Linda Perry-Smith, along with a talented young harpist and  two vocalists who won the recent Rotary Young Musician of the Year Competition. Steve Duckworth, new Musical Director of the Ashbourne Singers, provided the piano accompaniment.

The audience had the opportunity to join in too, singing Rule Britannia amidst much flag waving. Everyone agreed what a fantastic night it had been!

Thank you to the Rotary Club for their generosity and hard work – this is a fantastic sum of money for Careline, which will help to keep our valuable service running.

Thank you to everyone who  donated to Careline  or came to have a chat to our volunteers at Tesco in Uttoxeter on Friday 10th October. We raised £120 and met lots of potential members or people interested in volunteering for us.
