T.E.A.M R.I.S.E. Project held an open day at its new offices in St James Row, Burnley to celebrate cheque for £25,000 from the Blackburn and Pendle Masons.

TRP is a Community Interest Company based in Burnley covering East Lancashire, Burnley, Hyndburn, Pendle, Ribble Valley & Rossendale.

The project supports adults who have a learning disability, feel disadvantaged and those who are lonely or socially isolated to give the opportunity to develop, socialise and explore their ideas and goals through a wide variety of educational, social and practical activities.

These areas are some of the most deprived areas of the country with higher rates of disability.

The money will be used to fund a new staff member and expand engagement with the elderly of the area.
