Gifts in kind can save the hospice an incredible amount of money, and often reduce our operating and event expenses. We are always looking for items that we may be able to use as tombola, raffle or auction prizes for fundraising events held throughout the year.
Art Exhibition Textiles Ltd kindly provided us with luminous yellow running vests to issue to people who took part on our behalf. The vests certainly make us ‘stand out’ in the crowd, as you can see below
You may be able to spare us your time and/or expertise, or simply like to make a suggestion that would benefit our fundraising activities, if so we would love to hear from you.

Donations of goods or equipment
A company can get tax relief if they donate items that they would normally sell. If you give items to Rossendale Hospice, they are not counted as a sale, so your company can get tax relief on the cost of the article.
Donation of employees
If your company provided an employee to work for Rossendale Hospice on a secondment or a temporary basis your company can deduct the costs of their employment, including the employee’s salary in the company’s accounts
If employees are volunteering during work time, the company can claim tax relief for the employment costs incurred (employee’s salary). The company needs to treat the costs as a business expense when calculating chargeable profits for Corporation Tax purposes.
Tickets are still available for our Summer Raffle! You have until Fri 26th July to purchase a ticket from the hospice reception or one of our shops; Haslingden, Rawtenstall or Bacup. Draw takes place on Weds 31st July. Could you be the winner of £500? Got to be in it to win it!
In June, The Friends Group at Rossendale Hospice organised a Curry night at Anar Kali Restaurant. The evening was enjoyed by over 60 people and has raised a fantastic £621.20 for the Hospice. Thank you to the Friends and everyone who came to support the event.
As a result of the Rossendale Round Table closing, we were delighted to be invited to the last Spice Night held at Ashoka. Here, the Hospice were presented with a cheque for £1000 which we are incredibly grateful for.
Thank you for all your fundraising efforts over the years and we wish you all the very best.
