    Give a Collection Tin a Home

    Collection Tin

    For years, many people with learning disabilities have been kept ‘behind the scenes’.

    By providing a space for one of our collection tins, you’re helping to raise awareness and funds which help local people with learning disabilities to live the lives they choose.

    On average one collection tin will raise £60 a year. Multiply this by 100 and just imagine how many dreams can come true with £6,000 of your loose change!

    Could your workplace, local shop, pub, leisure centre, garage or hairdresser, home a tin to support adults with learning disabilities?

    For more information or if you could be a collection tin coordinator for us, please contact the fundraising team on 01260 252216 or email sue.heaven@rossendaletrust.org


    Involve your school, university, college or nursery

    Involve your School

    Fundraising at your school, university, college or nursery can be rewarding, educational and fun.

    It’s a brilliant way to support adults with learning disabilities.

    Raising money for charity not only helps motivate school children to think of others less fortunate than themselves, but it also brings a great sense of community spirit and good citizenship to everyone involved.

    We’ll help you fundraise by providing you with materials such as collection tins, posters and balloons along with providing guidance for events and templates for quizzes, storytelling and colouring competitions.

    Here are just a few ways to kick-start your fundraising:

    • Nominate the Rossendale Trust as your charity of the year
    • Hold a collection at your Christmas carol service, concert or play
    • Sponsored event – silence, walk, run, swim or dance!
    • Hold a cake sale
    • Organise a ‘dress down’ day or ‘crazy hair’ day
    • Hold a fundraising summer fair
    • Collect your coppers
    • Organise a school dance with money from each ticket going to the Rossendale Trust
    • Organise a raffle and sell raffle tickets
    • Organise a charity concert or talent competition
    • Take part in a character day

    Leave a Major Gift

    Leave a Gift

    Why leave a gift?

    How major gifts help us

    Your support and generosity enables us to deliver essential services and plan for the future. We rely on donations to help us. Our services are funded by the local authority and we ensure that all of those we support have the best possible care. It does not cover the cost of innovative projects and enhanced services which truly enable people with learning disabilities to live a fulfilling and active life within their local community.

    Like WorkTaste and Oakwood

    our day service for example

    As such we are seeking to maximise our fundraising potential to enable us to pay for these enhanced services which sit outside the remit of our core budget and statutory funding.

    As a supporter you will;

    • Receive regular updates on our work and the impact of your gift
    • Be invited to attend site visits, exclusive events and receptions
    • Be thanked publicly through key communications

    Make a major gift

    Email to sue.heaven@rossendaletrust.org to discuss your gift or to find out about Gift Aid or gifts of assets.

    Your Legacy – leaving a gift in a Will to the Rossendale Trust

    Making a Will is an important way of looking after the future of your family and friends. After you’ve taken care of your loved ones, you may also wish to leave a gift in your Will to the Rossendale Trust.

    By remembering us in this way you’re ensuring that our good work and the service we provide lives on. The donation can be as small or as large as you like.

    If you are unsure, you can use an easy to follow calculator, such as the one available online

    www.rememberacharity.org.uk/making-a-will/leave-a-gift-to-charity/gift-calculator

    This calculator will help calculate the value of your estate and calculate your charitable gift.

    By supporting the Rossendale Trust with a gift in your Will, you are supporting people with learning disabilities to develop and grow, enabling them to live as full a life as possible.

    Organise Your Own Event

    Organise an event

    Organise your own event

    If our organised events don’t take your fancy, why not arrange your own fundraising event?

    This could be anything from a cake sale or coffee morning to a car boot sale, sponsored swim or charity golf day – the choice is yours.

    We offer lots of help and support when organising your event, including plenty of materials, posters, collection buckets and bags of enthusiasm.

    Fundraising your way is simple and straightforward with our 12 easy steps:

    • Decide what you want to do – whether you’d like to do something adventurous, quirky, sporty or social, you’ll find inspiration on our A to Z of ideas in the fundraising materials to download.
    • Identify a date – what date would be best, not just for you but for the people you hope will attend?
    • Identify a location – remember you may need to book well in advance. Consider how much space you need, whether parking is an issue and if you need to hire a place, what your budget is.
    • Resources and costings – venue? entertainment? licencing? catering?
    • Plan ahead – write a list of everything you can think of that needs to be done, identifying people and tasks involved. Prioritise your list and arrange regular meetings with your volunteers, so you can brainstorm, share news and keep everyone updated.
    • Set your fundraising goal – set yourself a realistic and achievable target. You may want to seek support from local companies, have a raffle or hold a collection to help you reach your target.
    • Promote your event – once the details are decided it’s time to drum up lots of interest from everyone you know. Don’t forget to tell us what you’re doing so we can help publicise. Contacting your local media about your fundraising activity may seem a little daunting but it is relatively easy and only requires a little forward planning. You will not only raise more interest in your event but increase awareness. Set up a page for your event on Facebook. It’s easy and a fantastic way to encourage family and friends to support you, even if they live miles away. Use Facebook and Twitter to increase awareness about your event, Rossendale Trust and those whose lives are affected by learning disabilities.
    • Stop and think – What could go wrong? You need to think this through and plan accordingly. A month before the event, check everything is going to plan and make adjustments if not. How are your numbers looking? Do you need more publicity? Are costs mounting? Has the caterer been booked? Do you have enough volunteers? Do you need a license? Confirm with the venue and key people that everything is still on track and do so again, a week and the day before.
    • Enjoy! – most importantly sit back and enjoy your event. Watch all of your hard work pay off knowing that the funds you’ve raised will help dreams come true for people with learning disabilities in your community.
    • What to do after the event – thank everyone who has helped you along the way and tell them how you have done. Collect all the money you are owed by your sponsors. Download our sponsor forms if you need more.
    • Pay it in! – you can collect donations yourself and send them to us or raise money through .
    • Pat yourself on the back! – Be sure to let us know once you have finished your fundraising as we would love to send you out a thank you letter and certificate. We also love to see our fundraiser in action so please send us in any pictures that you have from your event.

    If you’d like to talk more about organising your own event, or to register for a fundraising pack, please call Sue Heaven on 01260 252216 sue.heaven@rossendaletrust.org

    We look forward to hearing your fantastic fundraising ideas. Why not get your workplace, school or college involved too?
