Markovitz raises 20k for Derbyshire charity

The charity #ChallengeDerbyshire is a blend of three existing local charities; Ashgate Hospicecare, Blythe House Hospice and Helen’s Trust all with an aim to “support patients and their families”.

The funds were raised at the Markovitz annual charity dinner held in November 2014.

Customers of the seven-branch merchant were invited to enjoy a complimentary four course meal alongside a raffle, an auction and a dance.

The amount raised on the night will go towards #ChallengeDerbyshire’s overall target of £100,000.
