With Rossendale Hospice’s new ways to fundraise there are lots of different options to choose from. Take a look below to find out what you could request in your fundraising pack.
This game comes with a grid and a special Rossendale Hospice Bear. The aim is to sell all the squares, each containing a name for the bear. The winning name is secured in an envelope which will be revealed at the end. It costs £2 to take part. A full grid of squares could raise £48 towards your fundraising target.
This fundraising activity allows your friends and family to guess the time you will complete a run in. It comes with a grid for them to choose their guess and they pay £2 to take part. There is also incentives for taking part in this fundraising game too as they could win 20% of the total raised. A full grid of squares could raise up to £52.
Ask family and friends to sponsor you the traditional way. Try getting your first sponsor to give £20 which will encourage others to support in the same way. You can also set up a just giving page to raise funds online. This is also helpful when promoting your fundraising though social media.
You don’t have to ask family and friends to help the hospice raise funds...
ONE OFF DONATION
You could decide to give a one off donation instead. Please check your registration pack for more details or contact the fundraising office for further information.
Rossendale Hospice runs a Supporters Scheme which allows you to make a regular donation to the hospice. It runs for a 12 month period and you can set the monthly amount. £15 a month would help pay for a nurse for the day.

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.
