The Joy of Giving

Our Funding

Ask a charity volunteer why they do what they do and you may well get the answer "I want to give something back". Ask the same question of a benefactor and you’re likely to get a similar answer.

Civic Pride Rossendale has no paid employees and no statutory funding. Our plants, our equipment even our running costs are paid for by our supporters.

It is often said that a gift is something that is enjoyed twice. Once by the giver who has the pleasure of giving it and then by the person who receives it. A gift to Civic Pride Rossendale will be enjoyed by thousands.

The donations we receive today will pay for the beautiful flowers you’ll see in the barrier baskets tomorrow, replanted twice a year. Last years gifts paid for this year’s gardens, the bright yellow jackets worn by our volunteers, their equipment and the compost bins creating next year’s mulch.

Can you help us?

The cups of tea and biscuits so kindly given, lift our spirits as we recognise them as a genuine thank you for the work we do. Even the smallest financial donation helps cover our costs. Grants and larger gifts enable us to undertake larger projects. All for the benefit of our community.

A lady recently donated £70 after asking her friends to donate money for a big birthday, a local businessman raised £1,500 by holding a charity event to celebrate 50 years in business whilst an ex-pat donated even more after a brief visit to his hometown.

Everyone of them did so because they wanted to help with the transformation of Rossendale.

Will you help us?


  • A single donation no matter how much or how little
  • A regular donation by standing order to help our cashflow
  • A donation in lieu of a gift
  • A gift in your will
  • A collection in memory of a loved one

We have no paid employees, so every penny benefits the community. Can you help?  Will you help?  Please.
