Festive fun started on Friday 4th December when over 150 ladies attended the annual Rossendale Hospice ladies Christmas luncheon at Nino’s in Rawtenstall.  The event now a firm favourite in the fundraising calendar is organised by a group of volunteers known as the ‘Special Events Committee.’  This year’s event raised a sparkling £13,600!


Saxophonist ‘Dax on Sax’ entertained the ladies and a great time was had by all whilst Radio DJ, Mike Toolan from Key 103 compered the event and did a marvellous job of hosting an auction with fabulous prizes including; a dining experience at Nino’s, make-up seminar by Frankie, Cocktail Masterclass at the Venetian Hideaway, Valentines weekend in the Lake District with a BMW convertible, a personal training package from Kat Forshaw plus a host of other luxurious treats.  Guests were also treated to goody bags with products donated by Forever Living, Bows Boutique and Tropic.


Sam Morris, Community Fundraising Manager is delighted with the amount raised “The event was a tremendous success and I’d like to thank all the guests who were very generous on the day and everyone who supported the event especially the Special Events Committee whose support is invaluable.    The money raised will help fund the many services the Hospice provides to people in Rossendale including Hospice at Home.   Our Hospice at Home nurses care for people at the end stages of their life in their own home, 24 hours a day, seven days a week and over festive period is no different”.
