We held our Christmas Coffee Morning at St. Oswald’s Hospital Foyer on Friday 8th Dec and what a fantastic morning it was! We had around 6 members attend, which is an increase in numbers since before covid. The nurses also brought down several patients to listen to Christmas carols sung by the wonderful Chameleon Choir.

The Mayor of Ashbourne, Anthony Bates, also attended and helped announce the winners of our raffle. Thank you to John Leicester for being Santa for the morning and to all the volunteers who helped on the day – we couldn’t do it without you – as well as everyone who popped by to support Careline. We raised an amazing £916!

Thank you so much!


We will be holding our Christmas Coffee Morning on Friday 8th Dec 10am-12:30pm in St. Oswald’s Hospital Foyer, Ashbourne.

Pop in for a hot drink and mince pie and listen to the amazing Chameleon Choir singing Christmas carols around the tree! There will be a tombola, stalls, raffle, as well as the chance to meet SANTA and receive a gift for a small donation – a fun morning for the entire family!

It’s free entry and open to everyone.

All money raised in aid of Careline Calling to help us continue to call vulnerable, lonely and isolated people.

Hope to see you there!
