LOROS Hospice is one of five major health and social care employers behind the recently launched recruitment campaign Y/Our Future that is encouraging doctors, nurses and health and social care workers to relocate to live and work in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

Latest figures from NHS Improvement show that 11.8% of nurse posts in England were not filled – a shortage of nearly 42,000[i]. Experts described the situation as at risk of becoming a "national emergency" given the rising demands on the NHS[ii].

Record-breaking £100,000 is raised at the Twilight Walk for LOROS Hospice.

Saturday’s circus themed Twilight Walk really was Leicester’s biggest girls night out, with total money raised so far hitting an astonishing £100,000.

The total amount of women to sign-up also hit a new record, with nearly 30% more women taking part, resulting in a jaw-dropping 2,541 women showing up at the King Power Stadium in Leicester City on Saturday.

Those that took part were treated to a whole host of carnival entertainment, and walkers came dressed as clowns, lion tamers, mime artists, circus acts and even fortune tellers, taking to the streets of Leicester to walk 10km to raise money for the charity.

Introducing a new LOROS Hospice challenge this year ‘The Mudnificent 7’, the UK’s most popular mud and obstacle race.

Devised by seven of the top obstacle race designers in the UK, their expertise has been utilised to create an exhilarating and challenging obstacle race that will really test your strength and stamina.

The 7km course takes place at 12.30pm on 11th August, and requires participants to overcome physical and mental challenges. The course must be completed on foot and is likely to include mud and water, so expect to get dirty.  Each 1km zone is unique and changes each year, so no two courses are the same.
