This Sunday, in celebration of the return of Antiques in the Street with popular local Auctioneer and BBC favourite Charles Hanson, Careline will be holding it’s first ever street collection!

This year’s event is centred around one of Ashbournes’ last remaining Malt Houses and there will be stalls set up along a closed off Church Street, from 10am – 4pm, selling antiques in the open air.

Antiques in the Street will also be running alongside a heritage open day, where the Malt House will be opening its doors for guided tours, as well as the new Artisan Market which will be set up on the Market Place.

We’re still hoping to find some more helpers for the day, so if you have an hour to spare please send us a message. Or if you’re planning on visiting the event, just come & say “hello” – our volunteers will be at both ends of Church Street and at locations throughout the town.

We’re really looking forward to what promises to be a super day!

Careline Calling is one of Dale Diva’s chosen charities this year and are very kindly doing a concert for Careline on 7th October at Empire Club, Ashbourne. Please contact Careline by email: info@carelinecalling.org.uk or telephone: 01335 210353 for tickets. Price: £7.50. See you there!!

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.

 

blowing out the candles cheers! jane & berkeley
