ADAY cel­e­brat­ing 30 years of Rossendale Hospice care raised a whop­ping £18,730.

Some 160 ladies sup­ported the hospice by at­tend­ing their 18th lun­cheon at Nino’s Res­tau­rant in Rawten­stall.

The day was or­gan­ised by the Spe­cial Events Com­mit­tee and spon­sored by CFH de­sign.

A thought pro­vok­ing and quite hu­mor­ous talk was given by Brenda Bot­tom­ley, an ex-pa­tient and cur­rent Rossendale Woman of the Year along with her sis­ter Denise.

Her tes­ti­mony on be­half of the cur­rent pa­tients was greatly re­ceived by the guests.

Guests en­joyed en­ter­tain­ment from ‘Dax on Sax’ and Joe Casser­ley was the host.

Sam Mor­ris, fundrais- ing man­ager, said the amount raised in four hours was ‘phe­nom­e­nal’, adding: “The Hospice is over­whelmed by the gen­eros­ity of the Val­ley peo­ple and beyond.

“Lo­cal busi­nesses and in­di­vid­u­als do­nated prizes and bought tick­ets to sup­port the Spe­cial Events Com­mit­tee with their fundrais­ing.”
