Published on 30th January 2018

National TV superstar and comedian Greg Davies has been appointed as a Patron of LOROS, following such an inspiring visit to the Hospice, he decided to mention it throughout his nationwide tour.

Best known for his roles in The Inbetweeners, Kuckoo, Man Down and Task Master, Greg has been mentioning LOROS in his comedy tour, after his visit to the Hospice had such an impact on him.

Keen to support the Hospice further, Greg has now been appointed as one of the Hospice’s Patrons, which he says he is “delighted” about.

“My visit to LOROS totally changed my perception of what a Hospice is and does,” he said. “The positive and uplifting atmosphere created by the staff confided my expectations. “I am delighted to become one of their Patrons.”

Following such a positive experience of LOROS, Greg has mentioned his visit to the Hospice throughout his tour, up and down the country.

In his penultimate show on Sunday, at Leicester’s De Montfort Hall, he spoke of how, when invited to visit a Hospice during his time in the city, while he accepted the invitation, he admits he was sceptical about the visit, to say the least.

He goes on to explain that while the Hospice was full of people with terminal illnesses, he was amazed to discover that actually, everyone at LOROS was very much alive.

Greg was so impressed with LOROS, he held a bucket collection at the end of his three Leicester-based shows, raising more than £2,000 for the Hospice.

LOROS CEO John Knight said: “We are constantly trying to dispel the myths surrounding Hospice care, so it is great to hear that Greg’s perception of what LOROS is completely changed the moment he stepped through our doors.

“Furthermore, I was extremely pleased and proud of the organisation to hear that Greg wanted to continue supporting LOROS and become a Patron of the Hospice, following such a successful visit.

“Everyone at LOROS, would like to welcome Greg as a Patron and we look forward to strengthening our relationship with him in the future.”
