Thank you all very much!

We are so grateful for all of the support that we receive from our local community and want to say a big thankyou! So this page is dedicated to everyone who makes a donation to Careline  – no matter how big or small, every penny really does help to keep our service running.

We took part in #GivingTuesday this week and what a great day it was.

Giving Tuesday is a global campaign that raises awareness and hopefully funds for charities taking part all over the world. We had great fun doing it last year, so we decided to take part again this year.

We posted throughout the day on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and had lots of likes, comments and shares – which is great to raise awareness for Careline to let people know what we do and how important our service is for people.

Our amazing community also donated to our #GivingTuesday appeal and we have raised £215 so far, which will help us continue to reach the most vulnerable and lonely people in society, especially over the Christmas period.

If you haven’t donated yet you can do so here.  Every pound we raise makes a huge difference to those we support. It doesn’t matter how big or small, every pound matters.

❤️ Thank you for all your support – we appreciate it so much ❤️

Thank you to all involved in the Dovedale Dash, for their generous donation of £300 to Careline.

The Dovedale Dash which began in 1953, is a cross country race of 4 3/4 mile, run by 1200 to 1400 people of all abilities. The venue is the picturesque area around the village of Thorpe near Ashbourne and Dovedale in the south of the Derbyshire Peak District.

The course is mainly along field paths and open ground in the valleys of the river Dove and Manifold. One of the excitements is the crossing of the rivers Dove at the well known Stepping Stones.

THE NEXT DASH IS ON SUNDAY 3RD NOVEMBER 2019

Last year was a particularly difficult one financially for the charity, but because we had such fantastic help from the  community we have been able to keep our telephone befriending service  running and to  support those needing us. But as we start 2019 we do so in a much more secure situation, having just secured 2 years of funding from the Big Lottery which will enable us to continue to develop our service and meet the growing demand! In the meantime we will  continue to fund raise,  to  ensure that we have enough resources to keep Careline going once that  funding comes to an end in 2021.

Thank you to all the staff and customers of Sainsbury’s in Ashbourne who last year supported Careline whilst we were charity bag packing at the store. All together we were able to raise a whopping £1515.78!

Many thanks to Foundation Derbyshire which has generously awarded £2,000 to Careline.
