So what is Markovitz Virtual
Sparkle Night 2020?
On Saturday 19th September 2020 between 8pm and 10pm, we’re asking you to walk, run, cycle or dance at home dressed up in your bunny ears and special edition Markovitz Virtual Sparkle Night T-shirt to raise vital funds for Ashgate Hospicecare!
Virtually sparkling this year, means that everybody can take part, including your pets! So, get your friends, family and dogs involved and take on your own challenge in your own way at North Derbyshire's biggest fundraising of the year!

This year, we have never needed
your support more
Coronavirus has also presented us with huge ongoing funding challenges. Our retail and coffee shops were closed for several months and are just starting to reopen; and many of our fundraising events have been cancelled or postponed. In our thirty-year history, we have never faced a challenge like this.
So, although we can’t come together physically this year, we need you to Sparkle more than ever before. Together, we can help to raise much-needed funds at a time when the demand for our services has never been greater and our funding has never been more uncertain.

Top frequently asked questions
How will I get my Sparkle T-shirt, medal and bunny ears?
Your fundraising pack, including your Sparkle T-shirt, medal and bunny ears, will be posted to you around a month before the event or shortly after you register if signing up within a month of the event date.
What will my £10 registration fee go towards?
Even though we aren't putting on a physical event, you will still be receiving your t-shirt, bunny ears, sponsor forms, a fundraising pack and your medal. Your £10 will go towards covering the event costs incurred but it’s your sponsorship that will really make a difference to patients and their families across North Derbyshire.
How will you bring the Sparkle atmosphere to life?
We have some special surprises in store for the big night that we’re sure will help recreate that unforgettable Sparkle atmosphere from home – and with younger children and pets being able to get involved this year for the first time, we'll do everything we can to make the evening as memorable as possible for the whole family.
