Council Chairman raises a glass as £532 is donated to Ashgate Hospicecare

North East Derbyshire District Council Chairman, Cllr Martin Thacker secured another £532 for Ashgate Hospicecare as he raised a glass at the Amber Valley Wines charity wine tasting event.

Amber Valley Wines was the picturesque setting for a wine tasting event which raised money for the Chairman’s Charity - Ashgate Hospicecare and was a sell-out event hosted by Barry Lewis.

The event saw attendees relaxing and tasting wines from the vineyards they stood in, and also sampled a wider selection from around England. The ambience was enhanced with live music from the Parker-Stephenson duo on a lovely summer’s day.

North East Derbyshire District Council Chairman, Councillor Martin Thacker said: “I am grateful to all those who supported the event at Amber Valley Wines and especially Barry Lewis for his generously giving of his time to facilitate our visit.

“£532 is another fantastic sum of money going towards such a worthy cause – Ashgate Hospicecare and I look forward to many more events this civic year”.
