Cassons sponsor Rossendale Hospice Business Challenge

Rossendale Hospice has launched its Business Challenge, sponsored by Cassons, part of the Baldwins Group, with the aim of encouraging local businesses to raise as much money as possible for the Hospice.

Rossendale Hospice, celebrating 30 years of providing support for people in Rossendale living with life limiting conditions, has launched the Rossendale Hospice Business Challenge which is sponsored by Cassons, and supported by Valley at Work.  The aim of the Business Challenge is to raise funds for the hospice through the local business community.
Head of Fundraising, Clare Richards explained: “From Monday 2nd July, we will be handing out £50 notes to companies who have registered to support Rossendale Hospice in our new Business Challenge event.  We want the £50 investment to be spent wisely and used to make as much money as possible for the Hospice.”
Businesses have 10 weeks from 2 July to raise as much money as they can, concluding on Monday 10 September when the funds will be counted.   The amounts raised will be announced at the Rossendale Business Awards, organised by Valley at Work, which take place at The Riverside on Wednesday 14 November.

Les Nutter, Chair of the Rossendale Hospice Corporate Ambassadors Group and Cassons’ Partner explained: “As a Group we have been very keen to interact with other businesses in Rossendale to show how we can work together to raise both the profile and much needed funds for Rossendale Hospice which does so much good for people within our community.

“We are delighted at the businesses who have signed up so far and hope that more will do so in the coming days.”

Cassons are one of the Rossendale businesses to have signed up for the challenge.

Rachael O’Kane, who works in Cassons audit and accounts team explained: “We have set up a committee with representatives from our various teams to work on fundraising ideas.  We have some great ideas so far – some activities that will be internal and others that will reach out to our clients and friends.  We’ll keep you posted!”

As well as raising as much money as possible, the participating businesses will also be competing for 6 awards, all of which will be awarded on the night at the Rossendale Business Awards.
