£639.51 is the amazing amount we raised whilst bag packing at Tesco Burnley on Thursday 19th December. Thank you to all our wonderful volunteers who helped out and to all the customers and staff for their support and generosity.
Back on the 7th November the Blackburn branch of Lloyds held a coffee morning to raise funds for Rosemere Cancer Foundation and East Lancashire Hospice. Thank you to all the staff and customers in raising a wonderful £400 for each local charity. Thank you also to Lloyds Blackburn, Darwen, Accrington and Clitheroe branches for having our Christmas cards to sell in branch and raising a further £298.32.
Well done to everybody involved in Pendleside Charity Tractor Run. Although the run was unable to go ahead this year they are all still feeling proud and thankful of the amazing support received enabling them to still raise an incredible £4,000 for Rosemere Cancer Foundation and ELHT&me. The tractor run first started 11 years ago and has raised around £50.00.
Rosemere had a rather chilly day on Saturday at Clitheroe Christmas Markets but it didn't put our volunteers off or all the people who took part in our tombola or bought Christmas cards and crafts helping us to raise a fab £122.65! There was a great atmosphere with all the wonderful market traders and we really enjoyed the visit to the market by a local pop choir to put us in a festive mood
It was another busy Friday in East Lancashire last week with store collections at Tesco Haslingden and Sainsbury's Burnley. Thank you to all our lovely volunteers who helped out and to all the staff and customers of both stores for having us in store to collect. £245.12 was raised at Sainsbury's and £350.13 raised at Tesco - FANTASTIC!
