LOROS Hospice, Leicester

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.

Please help support our patients and their families at the most difficult time of their lives, by supporting Rocket Round Leicester.

The Stats


We care for more than 2,500 local people and their loved ones every year.

£8.4 million

We have to raise £8.4 million from our local community every year to be able to deliver our care.


We’re very proud that 90p of every £1 received goes towards patient care. All our care is provided free of charge.

How you're supporting the Charity


All 40 of our stellar, GIANT Rocket sculptures will be auctioned on Wednesday 13th October to raise all-important funds for event organisers, LOROS Hospice. Yep, you could keep an incredible 8ft Rocket in your home, garden or workplace forever!
