A note about Covid-19 and our three amazing charities:
The current situation is likely to result in unprecedented levels of demand on our charities over the coming weeks and months, due to the pressures of this outbreak. Ashgate Hospicecare, Blythe House Hospicecare and Helen's Trust are working incredibly hard to ensure they can continue to provide vital care to patients and support their friends and relatives. Those who depend on their services are always the main priority and as such, it is so important that people keep supporting them.
Now more than ever before they need the continued help and support of our community. To those of you who have donated to #ChallengeDerbyshire recently we extend our most heartfelt thanks, every penny you give continues to go directly to them in this most challenging time.
#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.
Matty and Alex are challenging themselves for #ChallengeDerbyshire!
To show their support for #ChallengeDerbyshire, they have decided to push themselves to take on a weight loss challenge to raise pounds as they lose pounds.

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.
