Tonight (28 January 2024) I was presented with a donation from Camberley Heath Golf Club Captains’ Charity

Thanks to everyone at Camberley Heath Golf Club for their donations and fundraising over the past year with special thanks to Steve Burnell (pictured) Club Captain and Denise Haines Lady Captain for choosing Camberley Care Trust as one of their two charities for last year.

50th Anniversary

2024 is a special year for Camberley Care as it marks our 50th anniversary!

Camberley Care was founded “around Easter” in 1974 so we don’t have an exact date. Initially it was set up as a telephone advice service only, but over the years it evolved to what you see today. We will be celebrating our golden jubilee with all our volunteers, staff, and trustees, not forgetting our clients. The venue for the main celebration has been booked, the date has been set and detailed planning is in progress. You may also have noticed our special ’50th’ logo on this website.

As more detail becomes available to share we will post it here.

Suggested Donation

The Trustees of Camberley Care Trust last changed the suggested donation for the car service back in 2017. Since then, our costs have risen significantly, and we have therefore increased the suggested donation as of November 1st 2023.

We understand that any increase in costs can be a burden for our clients and their families. However, we believe that the proposed increase is fair and reasonable, given the rising costs that we face. Even after the increase, our car service still represents good value when compared to commercial taxi services, not to mention the extra care and attention that our wonderful volunteer drivers provide.

We are committed to providing the best possible service to our clients, and we believe that this increase in the suggested donation will help us to do so. The suggested donation for a single return will be increased to £10 and £15 for a double return. Trips to Frimley Park Hospital will now be £15. For out of area trips, we will be increasing the donation dependant on the mileage e.g. currently a trip of 10 miles has a suggested donation of £12 for a single return and £24 for a double. From 1st November this will be £14 for a single return and £28 for a double return.

We are grateful for your understanding as we work to ensure that Camberley Care Trust remains financially sound and able to provide the services that our clients need.

If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to call the office.

Thank you from the Mayor

The Mayor of Surrey Heath, Sarah Jane Croke, presented Camberley Care with a certificate of appreciation for everything we have done during the COVID crisis. She is very aware of the fantastic work all the charity and community groups do in Surrey Heath and knows that many went above and beyond during the crisis and she wants to recognise this.

Our certificate which will go up on the wall in the office

On behalf of the trustees, thank you all for everything you have done for Camberley Care over the last couple of difficult years. It has been challenging times but the support of our volunteers has been amazing, especially on our last-minute calls, particularly for clients who needed to get their covid vaccinations.

This award is for all of our volunteers, office staff, handymen and trustees.
