Did your school take part in the Inter-School Penny Challenge this year? If so give yourself a pat on the back because you helped raise a fantastic £4538!! And still the money continues to come in! The main aim of this challenge is to raise awareness of the work we do at the Hospice and also get the children's ideas flowing about how they could raise the funds to fill their penny box in the 6 weeks they had. The boxes were sponsored by Farrow & Farrow and the pennies are counted by our lovely volunteers so all of your contributions go to helping our patients. Here we have the schools who won their individual categories Little Stars Pre School, Helmshore Primary School & Haslingden High School. A huge thank you to all the schools in the Valley who supported us and to Natwest Rawtenstall. We really appreciate your hard work.
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.
