#ChallengeDerbyshire was formed in 2015 to raise money for our three amazing charities, Ashgate Hospicecare, Blythe House Hospicecare and Helen's Trust.
We have now smashed through our £1 million target and we're not going to stop! We are so lucky to have these three charities, working together we can ensure we keep them for the years to come.
COVID19 UPDATE: As expected, the current situation has resulted in unprecedented levels of demand on our three charities due to the pressures of this outbreak. Ashgate Hospicecare, Blythe House Hospicecare and Helen's Trust have become a critical part of the fight against coronavirus as they strive to care for as many patients as possible and ease the pressure on the NHS. By taking additional patients from local hospitals they are helping the NHS to care for the rising numbers of people who are seriously unwell with the virus.
Now more than ever before they need our continued help and support!

OUR THREE AMAZING CHARITIES
Blythe House Hospicecare adds quality to life by providing the highest levels of care for people affected by cancer and certain other life threatening illnesses and supporting those who are bereaved. Over 1000 people access Blythe House Hospicecare's services every year.
Ashgate Hospicecare provides care to patients across North Derbyshire at the hospice and in the community.
For patients with the most complex of needs, they have an Inpatient Unit. However most of their patients are cared for at home and can attend the Day Hospice if their symptoms need close monitoring. They have a team of specialist nurses and healthcare professionals who visit patients at home, which enables them to stay in familiar surroundings for as long as possible.
Helen's Trust aims to help remove the barriers that may be preventing a person from staying at home by funding
and providing care and equipment. Helen's Trust helps over 150 people with terminal illness across North Derbyshire every year.
