Welcome to The Raft Foundation

We are a charity formed as a community group in 2012 to serve and support the                      

community of Rossendale, Lancashire.


Our projects to date include the only Rossendale based foodbank service.


This has been achieved through the incredible support of our colleague volunteers, faith

and community groups right across Rossendale as well as from our amazing business community

who continually support what we do.










Charity No: 1191272

News: 24/11/13


Special thanks go out to Steve Tatt, the incredible musicians who gave their time as well as those who supported us on the night.


Some stunning music and old favourites rang out at Spring Terrace WMC late into the night.


The evening cumulated with a raffle and combined with receipts on the door raised just short of £200.00


This is sufficient to purchase all our fresh food items for the majority of December.


A big thank you again to Spring Terrace WMC for their continuing support of The Raft Foundation.











The Raft Foundation runs Rossendale's Foodbank! The Raft Foundation was created in Rossendale, Lancashire by local people to assist families and individuals experiencing financial hardship.
