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.

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.
