We were absolutely delighted this week to hear that we have become a nominee for this year’s Rossendale Business Awards.
The awards, which celebrate the thriving business community in the Rossendale Valley are always a great way to shine a light on organisations that have been working hard throughout the year in the area.
We’d like to publicly send a big thank you to those who have nominated us to be considered for the Valley at Work award. We will, of course be covering the awards as part of our programming and keeping our listeners updated on the great work going on by businesses across the Valley – even in these challenging times!
If you want to know more about the awards or find out more about the nominations – you can visit their website here.

We are so pleased with the delivery of our new station car from our friends at Countryside Autos in Waterfoot!
The Skoda estate has been decked out in our station branding and can now be found around the valley promoting the station and most of all – promoting the Valley!
From Crawshawbooth to Bacup, from the centre of Haslingden to the tip of Todmorden, we’ll be out and about and hopefully in time getting to see some great community events too.
As a special launch we have a competition to spot us while we're out on the road. If you see the station car whilst on your travels, take a quick pic and then send it over to either firstname.lastname@example.org or upload it to our facebook page. You’ll then be entered in our prize draw to win a brilliant amazon echo dot – meaning you can listen to the voice of the valley anywhere you want to in the house!*
Keep your eyes peeled – you never know where we’ll turn up!
*The amazon echo dot competition will run until Friday 23rd October when a draw will take place live on Bob Chadwick’s Valley Drive show – make sure you get your entries in!

Rossendale Radio launches their annual Toy and Gift Drive live on air
Rossendale Radio today launched it's annual Christmas appeal to help those in need at this time.
The ROSSENDALE RADIO CHRISTMAS TOY & GIFT APPEAL in association with The Rossendale Community Support Network and Kids In Rossendale will collect Toys & gifts at a number of collection points around The Valley. It is hoped all the Valley's supermarkets and other outlets will join the appeal and have collection points in their stores.
The appeal launched today with a closing date of 13th December. Toys and gifts collected will then be distributed among people referred by organisations such as CAB, Social Services and other Valley Charities.
Rossendale Radio organisers stated “Because of Covid 19, many people in The Valley will be facing hardship at Christmas and this is one way the Community station can help to support them. We know the good Valley people are always generous and happy to help those less fortunate”
If you can host a collection point, or wish to donate directly to Rossendale Radio, please email: email@example.com or ring to discuss on 07963 322966.

Rossendale Radio presenter and local writer Paul Jenkins is running around the Valley this Sunday
In lieu of the London marathon which he should have running this weekend, our very own Valley Breakfast and Weekend Wind Down presenter Paul Jenkins will be running up and down the Valley to raise funds for Lancashire Mind.
Starting at Dearden Tea Rooms in Haslingden at 7am October 4th, Paul will be hitting Helmshore, Rawtenstall, Waterfoot and Bacup before turning around at Sharneyford Primary School to do it all in reverse.
The Rossendale Radio team will be out in force along the way but if you see him, please do give him a cheer, a pip of the car horn or throw some jelly babies his way to keep his spirits up. You can tune in to 104.7FM Rossendale Radio in the morning to hear about his progress and maybe get an interview from the road. Then tune in at 4pm to see if Paul made it back in one piece to host his afternoon show.
You can still donate at his Just Giving page HERE if you'd like - it would be hugely appreciated as it's for an amazing cause.
