LOROS has three specialist children's shops located in Loughborough, Coalville and Humberstone and this month we are celebrating them as part of our shops campaign.
As part of the month the Hospice is on a bear hunt as part of their latest shops campaign.
Lionel, the Hospice’s mascot, will be going on a month long holiday to the Loughborough Children’s shop from August 1st, but he has left his best friend Archie, the chapel bear, behind!
Can you help put a smile back on Lionel’s face?
We need you to bring your bear to the shop to keep him company, and to snap a selfie of your bears having fun together. If you bring your favourite bear to the shop to have a photo with Lionel and a parent/grandparent shares the photo on social media with the hashtag #shoploros, you will get a little treat to say thank you.
Sam Glover, shop manager of the Loughborough children’s shop said: “Poor little Lionel is without Archie, and he is very sad. We’d really love you to bring your bear along to cheer him up!
“If you could let them sit together, so they can have a little chat, we’re sure that Lionel will be smiling once again.”
As part of the campaign, which aims to encourage shoppers to step outside their comfort zone and try buying from charity, the shop will also have other fun activities that children can take part in, including a colouring competition, with prizes up for grabs.
“At the end of the month, the winners of the colouring competition will be drawn and they will win a prize.
“We’re also looking forward to a visit from the Wriggly Readers from Loughborough Library, who will be reading some wonderful stories to the children and their bears on the 10th of August at 10.30am.
“There will be a big display of Ladybird Books, some of which are collectable items.” added Sam.
