That dream trip to Australia? A new car? A shopping spree for your friends and family? What would you spend £10,000 on?
LOROS’ Open Day saw more than triple the amount of people visit the Hospice than last year and raised nearly £11,000 in what was a hugely successful event for the charity.
Vice President of Hospice UK and one of the country’s renowned experts in palliative care, Baroness Finlay officially opened the LOROS Professional Development Centre today. (Monday 9th October)
LOROS has been honoured with the Community Partnership Award by Highcross at their Annual Outstanding Service Awards evening at the Showcase Cinema de Lux in Leicester.
David Needham, of Cold Newton, who has Motor Neurone Disease (MND) and is a patient at LOROS Hospice, completed the challenge in a specially made Mountain Trike in less than 24 hours.
The event, which is taking place on Sunday 15th October, is only possible thanks to the hundreds of volunteers who continue to turn up to lend a hand and this year is no different. From handing goody bags, giving out medals, to helping to control the crowd and marshals, there really is a job for everyone.
A 70-year-old mother and her daughters will be jumping 13,000 feet from a plane in memory of her husband after he died at LOROS Hospice.
Full Steam Ahead for LOROS is set to be more than just a ride on the Great Central Railway, with a country clothes stall, a Sunday stroll through the Leicestershire countryside and a delicious hog roast completing the event.
Something old, something new… LOROS is giving brides-to-be the chance to pick up their perfect wedding dress at a bargain price, with hundreds of brand new and pre-loved gowns all priced under £200.
Roll up, roll up, the greatest show in Leicester is coming to town, as LOROS has announced the highly-anticipated theme for next year’s Twilight Walk as being circus and carnival.
This year’s LOROS Open Day promises to offer something for all the family, complete with a petting zoo, live music, plus food and craft stalls, as the Hospice once again opens its doors to the public.
Determined not to let his visual impairment stop him, 30-year-old Ash Parmar, of Oadby, visits the Hospice on a regular basis, giving reflexology and massages as a volunteer complementary therapist.
Staff at LOROS are calling on people within Market Harborough to help them shape the future of their services by identifying whether opening up a wellbeing centre in their area would be beneficial to their community.
More than just your average Sunday stroll, Full Steam Ahead promises to bring a taste of Leicestershire countryside combined with a trip on the Great Central Railway to this year’s LOROS fundraising calendar.
The iconic beacons in St Peter's Square will be turning yellow for LOROS, as Highcross becomes one of the latest organisations to sign up for Yellow Day on Friday 13th October.
