“Our partnership with YMCA has gone from strength to strength. And in so many ways, it is a partnership built on honesty, compromise and what is best for the children of Derby.

Markeaton has always been rooted in strong community values and we feel that our partnership with YMCA only enhances this profile. There is no desire to achieve anything more or anything less than the YMCA and everything we do, we do together – long may it continue.”
