After just 11 days this year’s Grow your Tenner campaign has closed.  The Tenners have stopped growing for yet another year! and the match funding pot is dry!

SO a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who donated to Carers Careline during the campaign – we really appreciate your support.  Keep your eyes peeled for Giving Tuesday – a £5 donation can be match funded to become £10.  More details to follow soon!

We are now one week into the Grow your Tenner campaign, and thank you for the support we have received so far. BUT if you have not yet made your donation or have not yet shared this campaign with family and friends please, if you can, help us. A £10 donation will pay towards an hour’s counselling session for a carer. Please support if you can by visiting www/ to make your donation. Thank you!

To make your donation, please just log on to to turn your £10 into a £20 donation for Carers Careline (Localgiving will turn your £10 donation into a £20 donation through match funding).  If you are a UK taxpayer, and are able to,  please gift aid your donation turning £10 into £22.50 (both amounts are subject to a small administration fee which means Carers Careline will receive £19.30 from non gift aided donations, and £21.67 from gift aided donations).  So please support us with a £10 donation TODAY!  Your donation will help a carer enjoy a much needed break on one of our day’s out.

One day to go!

One Stroke Painting!

By | News | No Comments

Yesterday, Wednesday 30th September saw a small group of carers engage in the relaxing craft of one-stroke painting as part of our regular programme of carer sessions. Ably taught by Jill Stray from Redditch Lions they produced some beautiful works of art all using the techniques of one stroke painting.

If you are interested in signing up for any of our future craft sessions, or if you are not a registered carer and would like to register with Carers Careline,  give us a call on 01527 66177.
