Woodcock Haworth & Nuttall law firm tee up 6.5k for Rossendale Hospice
Lancashire law firm Woodcocks Haworth and Nuttall Solicitors has bolstered the charity coffers of Rossendale Hospice by £6,500 after the success of its latest charity golf day.
The annual event, which WHN has been running for 11 years, saw 22 teams tee off at Rossendale Golf Club to complete 18 holes in aid of the hospice. WHN scooped the top spot to secure the winning team, closely followed by James Killelea & Co Ltd with 96 points, while the team from Peel Land & Property came in at third place.Golfers were treated to sunshine and picturesque views of the surrounding Pennines during their round of golf, before enjoying drinks and a meal afterwards. Prizes including a luxury make-up bag and credit card holder from Mulberry UK and a spa package at Mellor-based Stanley House Hotel and Spa were also raffled off to rack-up additional funds.
David McCann, senior partner at WHN Solicitors, said: “Over the last ten years we have handed over £47,000 to the hospice from fundraising at our golf day, so we’re thrilled to boost the funds with the latest donation.
“The staff at Rossendale Hospice do an amazing job so it’s a real pleasure to have been able to raise this money to support what they do. We’re committed to supporting the hospice and it’s something we’ll continue to do in the future.”
Clarke & Clarke donated £1000 from their annual staff auction.
Home furnishings distributor, Clarke & Clarke has raised £1,000 for the Hospice with their annual staff auction.
The auction, which took place in December, sold pieces of furniture which had been used at trade shows throughout the year. The Haslingden based company, which has over 80 employees, decided to donate the money raised to a local charity and Rossendale Hospice was their charity of choice.
We are very grateful to the staff at Clarke & Clarke for choosing to support the Hospice.
Utility Smart employees in Stacksteads have donned their yellow t-shirts to raise funds for us. The team of six are going to cycle the distance from John O' Groats to Land's End, a whopping total of 837 miles on an exercise bike!
Throughout June, all Howdens Joiners throughout the UK are going to fundraise for their local hospice. Branch Manager Phil Clipston comments “We all know someone who has benefited from the invaluable services of a local hospice. Howdens in Haslingden is proud to support such a worthwhile charity.”
Business Development Manager at Tricketts Insurance says: “I do a bit of running, but running a marathon has always sent a shiver down my spine. However it has always been on my lifetime bucket list and I wanted to raise money for others with limited time left in their lives to complete their final wishes”.
5 Valley schools raised a record amount for Rossendale Hospice in an entrepreneurial challenge.
The event, jointly organised by Rossendale Hospice supported by Baldwins and Alder Grange School, is in its 5th year. The five schools raised a combined total of £7,130.64 in this year’s ‘Youth Enterprise Challenge’.
The contest, launched in October last year, lasted 16 weeks and saw Year 9 & 10 teams from Alder Grange, The Valley Leadership Academy, Whitworth High, Haslingden High and Tor View school, all come up with enterprising initiatives to generate as much income as possible to be donated to the hospice.
Thank you to all the schools who took part and for the hardwork and effort that went into their fundraising.
We are working as normally as possible in what is an unprecedented and ever changing situation, and following government guidelines to keep our patients, volunteers and staff safe. Our Hospice at Home Teams are continuing to provide essential care for patients in their own homes but unfortunately we've had to adapt some of our other service provision.
Our fundraising activities have also been impacted as we've had to cancel many upcoming events which we so rely on. We will be launching a campaign to run over the next 12 weeks, and while we appreciate these are the most difficult times for all, we would be most grateful if you are able to make a donation.
