sam

Many congratulations to QEGS pupil Samuel Bradley who was presented with an Award for Service to the Community at a school ceremony last week, in recognition of his support for Careline. Sam has been helping to raise awareness and fundraise for the charity for the last 4 years. It’s really lovely to see younger members of our community wanting to help to make other people’s quality of life better – well done and thank you Sam!

We’re absolutely thrilled to have been chosen as  Ashbourne Sainsbury’s Local Charity of the Year 2017/18 – this means a great deal to us! Thank you so much to the staff for nominating us and to everyone who voted for us. We were one of three great local charities in the running, so we’re extremely lucky to have been chosen. We’re really looking forward to working with Sainsbury’s over the next year.

Last week we held a very special event – our 20th Anniversary Strawberry Tea Party! This was an opportunity for over 100 of our volunteers, members and supporters to meet up over afternoon tea, fizz and of course a slice of birthday cake! Everyone agreed what a lovely celebration it was – so thank you to those who helped to make the day such a success, especially our hard working volunteers and trustees.

We’re thrilled and ever so grateful to the staff of Sainsbury’s Ashbourne who have chosen Careline as their potential charity of the year. But we now need you all to vote for us please! Follow this link:

and when prompted type in ‘Ashbourne’, click on the store name and then select ‘Careline’. Or if you’re in the store, you can vote for us near the entrance. It’s very quick and easy but would make a huge difference to us, as we continue to seek longer term funding. Many thanks in advance!
