On Saturday 9th March 2024, the iconic Devonshire Dome in Buxton once again hosted the annual #ChallengeDerbyshire Charity Ball.


Guests were treated to a lavish 4 course meal and live entertainment from the fantastic Anya and Function Fever, with the night itself raising over £120,000!


This means #ChallengeDerbyshire has now raised over £1.7million in total for patients and their families across North Derbyshire, thanks to a number of brilliant events and challenges.

Builders’ merchants Markovitz founded #ChallengeDerbyshire in 2015 to raise money for the amazing end of life care charities in North Derbyshire: Ashgate Hospicecare and Blythe House Hospicecare in partnership with Helen's Trust. Many local businesses contributed to the success of the evening and #ChallengeDerbyshire is run by Markovitz staff, meaning every single penny donated to the cause goes directly to paying for end of life care.

Currently one in four families who need hospice care can’t get it, equating to about sixteen families a week across North Derbyshire.  #ChallengeDerbyshire’s support is changing that and giving local people the choice to die at home, free from pain, with dignity and respect.


Thank you to everyone who is helping us be there for every family when they need it.
