The Careline team and volunteers completed the 8 mile sponsored walk at Carsington Water on Saturday. The weather was just perfect with blue skies and warm sunshine – not a cloud in the sky. We set off at 10:15am and crossed the finish line (or rather the visitor centre for a well deserved coffee and cake) at 1:15pm.

So far we have raised £370!!

If you didn’t manage to sponsor us there’s still time! You can either drop off your contribution at our office or by cheque (Careline, c/o St Oswald’s Hospital, Clifton Road, Ashbourne, Derbyshire, DE6 1DR), or if you prefer to do it online, you can do so here: Virgin Money Giving

Many thanks for your support!

On Saturday 29th September, Careline will be holding a sponsored walk around Carsington Water to raise funds for the charity. We would really appreciate if you would consider sponsoring the Careline Team (Jane, Jo & Carolyn plus Maisie the West Highland Terrier!). Donations can be made on the following link – it really doesn’t matter how much, as every penny really does count:

https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/charity-web/charity/displayEventDetails.action?eventId=30781&charityId=1005884&invocation=evt0050

You can also send us a cheque if you would prefer, made payable to Careline:

Careline, St Oswald’s Hospital, Clifton Rd, Ashbourne, Derbyshire DE6 1DR

 

Or even better come along and join us. We will be meeting at Carsington Water’s Millfields Car Park (southern end of the reservoir nr Hognaston. Parking fee £2.50 for the day) from 9.30am and setting off at 10am. The length of the walk is around 8 miles, although a slightly shorter version is also available. There are a range of refreshments options available at the Visitors Centre, so you can stop and have a coffee on your way. Everyone is welcome to join us, especially 4-legged supporters – in fact the more the merrier and every penny will go to the charity.

You can register on the day  or e-mail: jo@carelinecalling.org.uk who will send you a  registration and sponsorship form. Or call Jo on 01335 210353 for more information.
