Proud to be doing our bit



Charitable Support

We support the following local charities

The George Mellor Memorial Trophy

Here at Town & Country Aggregates, we support and help organise an annual charity golf day. David Slack our shift leader, has lost family members to cancer and has been fundraising for The Christie Charity since 2008.

The winners of the charity golf day win The George Mellor Memorial Trophy and everyone who plays helps raise essential funds for The Christie Charity, which provides enhanced services in addition to what the NHS funds.

“Gifts from the public make a huge difference to the care and treatment that The Christie is able to provide to our patients and their families.”

We are proud to be working with our nominated charities and are not looking to increase the number of worthy causes that we support

Challenge Derbyshire was launched in 2015 by David Hopkins, the chief executive of M Markovitz, the successful regional builders’ merchant with headquarters in Tideswell.

The event was initially organised as a team-building activity for the employees, with the aim of raising £100,000 for charity within four years.

The target was achieved in just four months and attracted the attention of companies across the region who were keen to get involved.

By 2020 Challenge Derbyshire, by then operating as a stand-alone charitable organisation, had raised £1m and to date they have raised £1.5m for three charities: Helen’s Trust, Blyth House Hospicecare (which recently merged with Helen’s Trust) and Ashgate Hospice.

Uniquely, the charity donates 100% of every penny raised to the three charities. Volunteers help to run the charity and to organise various fundraising events; members of their business club provide all the resources needed to ensure that charity continues to operate with no running costs, further reinforcing the links between the local businesses and the three charities that they are ultimately supporting.
