LOROS Hospice is once again hosting an unmissable fundraiser at Leicester Racecourse on Thursday 16th June with hopes to raise in excess of £10,000, which could pay for £1,000 patients to be collected from their homes and brought to LOROS Day Therapy, enabling them to take part in creative activities, access complimentary therapies and seek advice from specialist doctors and physiotherapists.

This exciting event offers ladies and gentleman the chance to experience the atmosphere of the prestigious Ascot Ladies Day right on their door-step.  So ladies pull out those jaw-dropping dresses and gents, dust off your best suits for a day will filled with entertainment, including games and awards for “best dressed.” Giant plasma screens will broadcast all of the action live from Ascot where guests will also have the chance to drink and enjoy a four-course lunch just as they would at the actual event.

LOROS Events Lead, Laura Betts, said: “This event proved to be a real hit last year and we are delighted that our Charity of the Year partners, Leicester Racecourse is enabling us to host this event once again. We are anticipating that it will be a sell-out.”

The day will encompass plenty of entertainment, including games and awards for “best dressed”, among others, a four course lunch and free access into the live race meet which takes place that evening.

“Remember it’s not just ladies who are welcome to join us, we want to see lots of men there too,” added Laura.

“This is such a fun event, so grab your friends and colleagues and come and enjoy a fantastic day out at the races.

“And remember, our By Design Shop, in Market Street have got a selection of beautiful race day-ready outfits and hats available at bargain prices, so be sure to check them out.”

The fundraiser will be a fun summers day out which raises money for a great cause. LOROS Hospice cares for more than 2,500 people across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland every year providing free, high quality, compassionate care and support to terminally ill adult patients, their family and carers.

Leicester Racecourse director Rob Bracken said: “The team at Leicester Racecourse are delighted to be working with LOROS once again.

“As one of our charities of the year, we do as much as we can to support the Hospice and the work they do; and what better than holding a fundraising event right here at Leicester Racecourse.”
