Why support LOROS?

Each year, we need to raise more than £8 million to deliver our care. With your help, we can continue to develop LOROS as a place of care and support for thousands of terminally ill patients and their loved ones across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

Chris, 55, is on our Inpatient Ward and likes drawing pictures. He’s brilliant at it, and as he lies in his bed, it gives him a lot of enjoyment. His skills are even more amazing as he’s only been doing it for a couple of years.
