Rossendale Community Projects supported by ISSL
ISSL is proud to be part of the Rossendale Valley, based in Rawtenstall we have developed quite a few connections over the last 18 months with whom we have worked closely with on many occasions.
Rossendale Rugby Under 11 and 12's
We first got involved in RRUFC under 11 and 12s a couple of years ago when they were in need of new shirts. We decided that as a local team in need of help we would do what we could.
The club is always looking for more players so if you are interested and want to know more then contact the club and ask for Paul Kilshaw. They practice and play Sunday mornings and are a friendly bunch.
Rossendale Raptors Basketball Team
Rossendale Raptors Website.
In early 2011 we were asked by Ken Masser of the Rossendale Raptors if we would provide a quote for a new website that would enable them to compete online with teams that they play against. They were looking for something that was modern, fresh and that would appeal to a variety of age groups. It was to be a source of information not only to the existing members but to also help them attract new ones. We knew that as a non profit making organisation that money was tight so we designed and built the site for free and became a sponsor of theirs. We wish them all the very best.
Valley At Work
Valley at Work Website.
The Valley at Work is a non profit making organisation that is based in the valley to help businesses based here start up and grow. There are a number of very successful businesses in the valley and by working together and supporting each other we can help each other.
Part of the support we give is not only from the design, built and host of the website and facebook but also Lisa Thompson is now the chairman of the steering group who meet up monthly and discuss ideas on which to help bring businesses closer together in the Valley.
Clogs Ont Cobbles
Clogs ont' Cobbles Website.
This is an annual event, that takes place in November in Bank Street Rawtenstall. It is a Victorian Christmas event where once again all local businesses get together to help bring together an event for local people to shop local in the run up to Christmas. ISSL helped in the marketing of this not just with a website but also by actively promoting it through local connections and the Valley at Work. This is an ongoing event and ISSL will be supporting it even more in 2011.
Other Causes Supported
This is a small website to help promote 2 local people climbing Kilimanjaro to raise money for Christies hospital in Manchester.
Incredible Edible Rossendale have a 2020 vision for self sufficiency in the towns of the Rossendale Valley. They aim to encourage residents to grow their own produce either on their own land, or, on community land tended by IER volunteers.
