LOROS Yellow Day Held
Companies, organisations, schools, universities and individuals were encouraged to wear yellow for LOROS this October.
An organisation who took part in last year’s Yellow Day for LOROS encouraged others to join in the fun this October.
Leicestershire County Council raised nearly £1,000 for the Groby Road Hospice by asking members of staff to include yellow in their outfit, as well as organising a cake sale and raffle.
David Snartt, Chairman of the Leicestershire County Council 2015/16 said: “I was delighted that the elected members and staff of the County Council supported the LOROS Yellow Day with such enthusiasm.
“With a flash of yellow in the dress code, a sale of homemade cakes and a raffle, we all enjoyed getting involved to support such a worthwhile cause, and raised nearly a thousand pounds in the process.
Jessica Magnor, Lettings Manager at Frank Innes, who took part last year said: “We decided to take part in Yellow day for LOROS last year as we wanted to have a fun day and get as many people involved as possible.
On the day all staff wore yellow and we were offering cakes and drinks out to customers and other colleagues. Not only did we raise money for such a great cause but we also had a lot of fun in the process.”
This year’s Hospice Care Week kicked off on Monday 3rd October and LOROS celebrated the national campaign in a number of ways.
Among other exciting events, LOROS hosted their Hospice Open Day, ‘Love Leicester, Love LOROS’.
