MVIS continue to Support Ashgate


Here at MVIS, we are lucky enough to be able to show our support to others in the community and be able to spread positivity through sponsorship. Not only do we show our support within our community by sponsoring locally run clubs such as Matlock Town Football Club, recently we have been trying to support a charity which through this pandemic has suffered more than most, Ashgate Hospice.

Ashgate Hospice Care is a charity that provides compassionate, specialist palliative and end of life care, free of charge, to patients with a life-limiting illness and their families across North Derbyshire.


 Despite the high pressures of the last year, Ashgate looked after over 1,680 patients at home, 414 patients on their ward and supported 476 bereaved family members.

This is why we are determined to support Ashgate and what they do for the community and so have held fundraising activities and spread awareness by offering free Original 5 colour VMS units and taking on challenges as a team.

Our latest fundraising activity was undertaken by our UK Group Commercial and Operations Director, Anne Ashman who completed a high peak trail walk of 17 miles on Saturday 10th July. Anne took on this walk as she is currently training to do a 75 mile walk in 3 days to raise money for 3 charities close to her heart. Being the perfect opportunity to get some training in and raise awareness and funds for Ashgate, she completed the 17 miles in 4 hours and raised £220.

After speaking with Anne she said “Being able to take on this challenge and offer support to such a worthy charity is something that I love to be apart of. Recently we have been getting involved with more charitable work such as our carboot sale, where we raised over £300  and we are currently planning on hosting a cake and coffee event for Ashgate. We have always done what we can to give back to the community and will continue to show our support when we are able to.”

As a company, we wanted to congratulate Anne on her fantastic achievement that she not only shares with Ashgate Hospice care, but also every person in the area who comes to rely on their services.
