Thank you to all who supported our collection day at Adsa Rawtenstall last Friday. We raised a fantastic £310.
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.
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.
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.
Thank you to the cyclists and support team at Haslingden Cricket Club for donating £1000 to the Hospice. In July, a team cycled from the Lords Cricket ground to Haslingden Cricket Club raising an amazing £8000. Thank you to everyone involved!
Our day therapy patients enjoyed another visit from Chase the therapy dog yesterday. He enjoyed lots of cuddles and treats! Here is a picture of Chase leaving and taking a moment to watch all the passers by! Thank you Chase for bringing so much joy and happiness to so many.
Thank you to everyone who has supported Rossendale Hospice during Hospice Care Week. It has helped many local people living with a life limiting illness access the services they need.
If you are in Rawtenstall today why not pop along to Asda and say hello to our wonderful volunteers who will be there between 11am-4pm. They will have lots of Hospice information leaflets and various merchandise!
Listen to the views of some of our patients and hear about what the Hospice needs to provide our services.
