Annual Golf Day for LOROS Hospice

The hugely successful annual Golf Day for LOROS Hospice is now in its 12th year and has raised over £110,000 so far, which could be used to cover the cost of Day Therapy for 55 days, or to cover the cost of a specialist nurse for three years. 

The event, which will take place at Rothley Park Golf Club on 11th May will feature the ever-popular sponsored tees element. Businesses are pitching their pun-inspired holes including Parkers the Parts people with The ‘Par-kers Hole’, Swithland Spring Water have ‘The Watering Hole’, and Sturgess of Leicester have ‘The Driving Range’. 

This year will be the final year that LCM Wealth Management will be sponsoring the event, and LOROS are on the lookout for a new partner for 2019, to ensure that this much-loved annual occasion can continue for years to come. 

LCM have been sponsoring the event for the past six years, helping to raise nearly £75,000 for the Hospice. 

LOROS Events Lead Laura Betts said: “We are so humbled by the generosity of our sponsors. Our golfing event has been one of the most successful events we’ve held over the years. 

“LCM have been amazing, the money raised is invaluable to LOROS and we’ll be sad to see them go. However, it opens up a great opportunity for a future partner that may want to come on-board and sponsor this popular event.” 

During the day, teams will be treated to a welcome buffet, with the event starting at 12pm, and the shotgun start at 12.30pm. Hospitality will be provided at the 12th hole, sponsored by Mosdorfer CCL and goods kindly supplied by Dominic at David North. Dinner and a live auction will take place later on in the evening. 

“Our annual Golf Day is always a fabulous event, thoroughly enjoyed by everyone” added Laura. “And because of the kindness of our sponsors, it raises vital funds for the Hospice enabling us to continue caring for our 2,500 patients each and every year.”
