Ashbourne Rotary Club Donates £1000 to Careline

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.
