On Saturday 16th November, North Derbyshire’s local community came together and raised an amazing £11,736 at Ashgate Hospicecare’s Christmas Market.

Carl Jones, Fundraising Manager at Ashgate Hospicecare, said: “Thank you to everyone who made this year’s Christmas Market so special. Despite the wet and miserable weather, it was such a fun, festive, family day which raised an amazing amount of money for patients and their families across North Derbyshire. We hope everyone enjoyed it as much as we did!”
