Thank you to everyone who helped us to achieve this – to all of the hospital staff, our volunteers, members and supporters. To the Ashbourne Singers who always come along to sing, making the morning such a festive occasion; to acupressure massage therapist Jeannette Pike and to Blenheim Vets, Blooming Beau & Optimum who generously donated prizes to our Christmas Draw. We simply couldn’t have done this without you xx

“When it gets to a certain time in the afternoon you look forward to hearing the phone ring. It’s so good to know that you are going to have a chat with someone. It cheers you up.” – Careline Member

Careline provides a free telephone befriending service to those living in the Derbyshire Dales and East Staffordshire, and 2017 marks our 20th year. We support members of the local community from all walks of life who suffer from loneliness and isolation and who feel disconnected from society for many different reasons and who may not get to speak to anyone for days at a time.

“Your calls give me confidence. Thank you with all my heart.” – Careline Member

Our calls offer friendship 365 days a year and support over 100 people. Since our Lottery funding ended in late 2015, we have had to fight hard to keep our service up and running. Without the donations from generous people like you, we simply won’t be able to operate. This would be heart breaking given the demand for our calls has never been higher.

Our members tell us every day just how vital our calls are to them – please help us keep to Careline going by donating as much as you can – click the link below to donate. Thank you.
