LOROS reveals winning photos in its calendar competition

Published on 29th July 2020

LOROS Hospice has unveiled the spectacular winning images in its photography competition to create the LOROS 2021 Calendar.

An urban canal towpath and a very inquisitive cow join more traditional images of a snowy park at dusk, and a beautiful baby deer.

Gary MacMillan-Dale, retail manager at LOROS said, “These stunning images show all sides of Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. We hope there’s something for everyone to enjoy here, from lovely sunsets to poppy fields to waterfalls. It’s a reminder of how beautiful our counties are.”

The pictures will form the LOROS 2021 Calendar which will be sold in the charity’s shops to raise essential funds.

The twelve winning images were submitted by local amateur photographers who wanted to use their talents to support LOROS. Many of them had personal connections to LOROS and memories which inspired them.

Dave Capella, whose photo of swans and their cygnets will be June’s image, said, “A good work friend of mine was in LOROS a few years ago. It’s a fantastic cause and I'm proud to be part of this to help raise funds.”

Chris, who supplied May’s image said, “LOROS is a great, local charity. A couple of years ago a close friend of my mum’s died at LOROS. She used to babysit me when I was a kid and I have fond memories of her.”

Gary adds, “Hearing these stories made us realise that LOROS really is at the heart of our community, and people love having an opportunity to show their support. We’re so grateful for that.”

The calendars will be available to purchase from October.
