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.
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.
The Friends group are a group of volunteers who support the Hospice by organising events to fundraise for the Hospice. Please support them by attending the Fashion Show which is being held at St Mary's Chambers on the 19th of November. All welcome.
