Help us celebrate 35 years of care!

This month LOROS turns 35 years old. We’ve seen a lot of changes since we welcomed our first patient back in September 1985. Our Inpatient ward has grown from 12 beds to 31, our services now include day therapy, complementary therapy, physiotherapy, occupational therapy and much more. Our network of shops now stands at 29. Each year we care for more than 2,500 patients across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

To celebrate the occasion we have a host of exciting events planned – and we’d love you to get involved and help us fundraise to mark our anniversary.

We’ve been here for 35 years, help us be here for 35 more.

Afternoon Tea Picnic Week

What better way to spend a Summer’s day than with a sophisticated Afternoon Tea, delivered straight to your door? It’s time to put the Prosecco on ice, because LOROS Picnic Week is coming!

LOROS presents an Outdoor Cinema Weekend

Following the government’s announcement of new measures to restrict the spread of COVID-19 and seeking advice at a local level, we have decided to take the difficult decision to cancel our Outdoor Cinema Weekend.

‘Go the Distance for LOROS’ is our brand new fundraising event that allows you to cycle your chosen distance your way, between now and the end of September
