Rocket Round Leicester and the Rocket sculpture has been specially commissioned and created just for Leicester. It is inspired by Leicester’s incredible scientific and space heritage.
THE ROCKET IS SYMBOLIC OF LEICESTER AND OUR CITY’S VISION
Every day for the last 52 years, we have had an instrument in space that was built in Leicester. Leicester has been hailed the UK’s ‘Space City’ due to the development of Leicester’s Space Park, also opening in 2021.
THE ROCKET IS A SYMBOL OF INNOVATION
Innovation is something that is highly valued by LOROS Hospice. At LOROS we are always looking at new technologies which may help to improve the lives of our patients and also the care given.
THE ROCKET SCULPTURE HAS UNIVERSAL APPEAL
The sculpture’s appeal to all ages, genders and cultures. The shape is extremely versatile and will lend itself to multiple interpretations allowing many different stories to be told through the stunning designs.
THE ROCKET IS REPRESENTATIVE OF THE FUTURE
LOROS Hospice strive to be fit for the future and able to care for the people who need it the most. The Rocket symbolises our desire to be around so that future generations can access our care.
