Rossendale Hospice are a charity and as such we have to raise 75% of our yearly £1,000,000 running costs ourselves.
Fundraising and retail income which we rely on so heavily was dramatically reduced during the COVID crisis whilst the need for our services across our community went up. Our supporters are vital.
Want to help but don't know where to start? There are so many different ways!

This year our Youth Enterprise Challenege is back. If you have a budding young entrepreneur or want your class to do an excerise in economy with a fundraising return, then this is the challenge for you. Participating groups will be given £50 to turn into as much hospice care as they can, through investment, innovation and hard work. All profits will come back to the hospice to fund vital services but participants will receive a certificate and prizes will be given for the highest achievers at an awards ceremony 23rd April 2024.

The Light up a Life Service Thursday 12th December 2024 We invite you to join us on Thursday 12th December for an evening of candle-lit remembrance at St Mary’s Church, Rawtenstall. Tickets are free for those who have remembered loved ones but it is not compulsory to attend the service.
