The official opening of the LOROS Professional Development Centre


Vice President of Hospice UK and one of the country’s renowned experts in palliative care, Baroness Finlay officially opened the LOROS Professional Development Centre on Monday 9th October.

Kicking off this year’s Hospice Care Week, the celebration took place at 11am and was also attended by LOROS Patron Alan ‘The Birch’ Birchenall, a year to the day after the Leicester City legend helped mark the official start of the building work, with a turf cutting ceremony.

Baroness Finlay cut the ribbon to mark the opening, surrounded by LOROS staff, volunteers, trustees, ambassadors, as well as LOROS President Jennifer, Lady Gretton.

LOROS CEO John Knight said: “We felt extremely privileged to have welcomed Baroness Finlay, the Vice President of Hospice UK, to open our Professional Development Centre today."
