School, college & university fundraising

We work closely with local schools on a range of projects that help support the care LOROS provides.

School partners

Learn, support, give back

We have so many ways children and young people can get involved with LOROS on a small, medium or large scale with ideas for all age groups.

If you would like to fundraise for LOROS, we can help with ideas, posters and support as well as supplying lots of information about us to help educate, stimulate and motivate students.

Our fundraisers are also happy to visit schools, both primary and secondary and universities to give talks about the work of LOROS.

For more information or help with your ideas, please contact Emma Baxter on (0116) 231 8431 or by email

How you can get involved

Your support is very important to us and there are so many ways you and your pupils can get involved on a small, medium or even huge scale!

What we offer:

  • We are keen to visit you to talk about the work we do

  • We are happy to arrange for children and students to visit the hospice at any time

  • We can tailor our talks to any age groups and we can also visit your school for assemblies and talks

  • Our LOROS mascot, Lionel the Lion can make a special visit to your class or event. This is ideal for younger primary pupils.

Schools & Nurseries

From sponsored silences to bake sales, sitting in baths of custard or creating a physical obstacle course, the ways you can support LOROS is endless. The only limitation is your imagination!

Getting pupils involved in the planning of your fundraising will give them a real sense of ownership and achievement, as well as come up with ideas that you may never have thought of. So, tap into their creativity and sense of possibility to create your fundraising events.

  • Some of our current supporters have Run an event or series of events to benefit the Hospice. This could include taking collections or donating proceeds from ticket sales at plays or concerts.

  • Invite us to sell Hospice merchandise (such as greeting cards)

  • Have LOROS information at your events such as newsletter and events flyers

  • Run a stall at a summer fete, or other event

  • Other ideas include cake making and selling … the possibilities are endless

Further Education

There are a myriad of ways students can fundraise.

A few suggestions include:

  • Music gigs

  • Quiz nights

  • Fancy dress bucket collections

  • Taking part in one of our LOROS challenges at home or abroad.

However, students are always full of high jinks, great ideas and more importantly, full of energy so the list could almost be endless!

As well as fundraising events they could help out at one or more of our locally run events, assist on a stall or even help out at the Hospice.

Our team are happy to visit Fresher’s Week or other events as well as deliver talks to students as needed.

You might also think about nominating LOROS as your university’s RAG charity.

Uniform Groups

Groups such as Scouts and Girl Guides have regularly supported LOROS for years and we are always grateful when new groups wish to support.

Linking your fundraising activities to one of your challenge badges is a great way to support LOROS. Have you got a baking badge that the cakes made could be sold on? What about an environmental badge and running a sponsored litter pick?

An example of this working really well was Charnwood Division Girl Guides who created a bespoke challenge badge for our Rocket Round Leicester project.

All fundraising done by, on behalf of, or in aid of a charity is regulated by the Fundraising Regulator’s Code of Fundraising Practice. For more details on how this affects you as a supporter please download our factsheet or contact us at

We also ask you to complete this short form to let us know about the money you raise and spend in your activity. You can download this form here.

My father was very comfortable and we felt so pleased he was getting the right care. If you can use the word enjoy about end of life care, then he enjoyed it.

I remember the day Graeme went into LOROS and called me. That was the first time in what felt like ages, that he sounded happy
