Majors Charity Fund 2015:
The Raft Foundation young ambassadors Jake & Mathew Burrell, Morgan Louie and Billie-Jean Harris were delighted to accept on behalf of the foundation a cheque from Rossendale Mayor Tom Aldred and Mayoress, Mrs Valerie Sanderson.
The Raft Foundation would like to thank Major Tom Aldred and Mayoress Mrs Valarie Sanderson for supporting our walking football tournament, Duck Race held at The Masons Arms Crawshawbooth as well as our Family Christmas Party all held in 2014.
The Mayor's Charity Fund this year identified and made donations to a number organisations working for and with young people within Rossendale.
Indeed it was a pleasure to share the council chamber with representatives of other diverse and active third sector organisations.
Again we would extend our thanks for donation assisting us in our work connecting communities in Rossendale.
