Markovitz has raised £21,000 for local charity #ChallengeDerbyshire at a charity dinner

Builders' and plumbers' merchants Markovitz's annual charity dinner was held on 28 November, and the money raised will be split equally between the three local charities that make up the #ChallengeDerbyshire brand.

These are Ashgate Hospicecare, Blythe House Hospice, and Helen's Trust. All the charities aim to help people with life-limiting illnesses and give support to their families.

Markovitz would like to thank everyone that attended and also all of the staff involved in the preparation of the event.
