Rossendale Hospice Befriending Billboard

 In December 2016 we gave the Rossendale Hospice their first ever billboard advert calling for local befriending volunteers.

It is a large advert to tackle the growing issue of loneliness in the valley. “Many older people are lonely all year…..not just at Christmas”…says Justin The Hospice Befriending Coordinator.

Tricketts Insurance Brokers donated the space, paid for the printing and putting up the advert. Janine, Director at Tricketts comments “We have just secured this advertising space and we are proud to help support the local community at what can be a very lonely and isolating time of the year for some.” 

Feedback from the hospice on the  9th February was  “Thanks to the Tricketts billboard and the ad campaign we ran on the back of it, we received over 20 direct calls and texts from members of the Rossendale Community who were interested in either knowing more about Befriending or how to become a volunteer for the service. Out of the 22 calls received, 16 new Befriending Volunteers have been recruited, radically reducing our waiting list and helping us to reach lonely and isolated members of the Rossendale community.”
