We’re thrilled to announce that Merchant’s Jeweller’s Annual Charity Live Raffle has raised an incredible £1,000 for Children First Derby!

The Raffle formed part of the Jeweller's third anniversary celebrations - marking three years since opening Merchant’s Jewellers, based at Mercia Marina. And it was our first joint fundraising event since being chosen as Merchant’s supported charity of the year.

The Raffle was drawn and streamed Live via Merchant’s Jewellers Facebook, on 1st August, and included an array of exquisite jewellery, generously donated by owners of Merchant’s Jewellers, Karim and Tanita Merchant.

Lucky prize winners won a selection of Merchant’s beautiful necklaces, watches, bracelets, bangles, earrings, rings and cufflinks, as well as a few designer items donated by Children First Derby volunteers and friends.

And Karim and Tanita will be contacting all the raffle prize winners over the coming days, with further information.

The raffle raised a whopping £940 and Karim and Tanita very kindly donated a further £60 to reach their target of raising £1,000 for Children First Derby - helping us to support vulnerable children, young people, and families across Derbyshire.

We would like to say a HUGE Thank You to Karim and Tanita for their incredible and continued support of the charity and the work we do.

The couple have been avid supporters of Children First Derby since they opened Merchant's Jewellers, attending various Children First Derby functions, donating gifts to our popular Ladies Lunch Event and Fashion Show -where they also brought along a fabulous collection of their designer jewellery.

And we're pleased that Tanita will once again be joining us at our forthcoming Ladies Lunch, on 8th September at Morley Hayes, and will also be modelling in our Annual Fashion Show on 12th November at the Derby Conference Centre.
