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!

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
