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.

There has been loads going on this week at The Raft Foundation.


Special thanks must go to The Biscuit Fund who provided an amazing donation of food this week.


To be acknowledged and supported by this organisation we feel is a testament to how our community supports one another.  


Our Walking football Tournament is gathering pace with teams signing up thick and fast.


See the link to our special page for more information.


Our volunteers have been busy washing ironing items including baby clothes, children's clothes, items for the street homeless and of course getting ready for Christmas by preparing gifts for children and adults.


Watch out for the urgent Christmas list coming soon.


In preparation for Christmas our Children's Christmas Party has been set for 7th December at IDL Club in Haslingden, more information to follow.


Special thanks go to the committee and Kay for all their help in organising what will be a great day.
