LOROS prepares to welcome 1600 ladies “Back to School” at their annual Twilight Walk
There is one night in the LOROS event diary that strikes fear in to the hearts of men all over Leicester, one night that unites mothers, daughters, sisters and friends, a night where the ladies takeover King Power Stadium and paint the town PINK! This night is known as The LOROS Twilight Walk and registration is now open for the event which takes place on Saturday 13th April.
Year on year LOROS continue to set records with this event and it is now one of their BIGGEST annual fundraisers with last year’s walk raising in excess of £50,000. This year LOROS event organisers have had to stagger start times for the walk in order to allow more people to take part!
This event sees women from all over the East Midlands coming together for the BIGGEST GIRLS NIGHT OUT IN LEICESTER and to raise vital funds for their local hospice.
When Head teacher Fiona Parr of Rothley Primary School heard that the theme this year was “Back to School” she couldn’t wait to get her female colleagues together to take part in the event for the second year running. Fiona said “Sadly we lost our colleague Sarah at LOROS in December 2011 so when we heard about the Twilight Walk we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to come together and do something to raise money for LOROS and also to remember Sarah. The camaraderie and ‘bon amie’ of the occasion really helped to lift our spirits.
LOROS encourages participants to embrace the theme and to don fancy dress for the occasion where there will be a scrupulous (demon) headmaster and plenty of playground games to get you warmed up before you take to the streets.
Christian Weikert – Picker, organiser of the event said; “It’s incredible to see how women come together on this very special night. Women really see it as a chance to come out and let their hair down, whilst at the same time doing something completely worthwhile for charity”.

Men, if you are feeling left out (and brave!) we have plenty of opportunities for volunteers available on the night. Please call the LOROS fundraising department on 0116 2318431 for more information.
