LOROS Hospice is a local charity and every year we care for over 2,500 people across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. We deliver free, high-quality, compassionate care and support to terminally ill patients, their family and carers. Patients and their families are at the heart of everything we do.
We are here to offer a helping hand, a listening ear, and deliver caring support by people that understand. We are about life and living. It’s about making people comfortable and being there to help and support them and their family. We help people living with a terminal illness make the most of the time they have left.
Our dedicated team of 385 staff are helped and supported by more than 1,300 caring volunteers. We provide specialist care at our Hospice in Leicester, in patient’s homes, and in partnership working with our local hospitals and GPs.
It costs us £8.5 million each year to be able to deliver our services. The NHS does give us some money, but we still need to raise at least £8.4 million each year from our local community to deliver our services.
We’re very proud that 90p of every £1 received goes towards patient care.
Please help support our patients and their families at the most difficult time of their lives, by supporting Rocket Round Leicester.
LOROS Hospice is proud to be working with Wild in Art to bring you Rocket Round Leicester in summer 2021.
