Red Nose Day took place earlier this month, so today we take a look at the story behind the national fundraising event and our very own chosenRND 1 charity.

Comic Relief evolved in 1985 out of Live Aid, and since then has raised almost a billion pounds for worthy causes around the world. This year’s motto – Make your Face Funny for Money – has no doubt had some hilarious consequences, and we wish Comic Relief every success with this year’s appeal! They have already raised a staggering £78,082,988 and you can help them raise more here.

It seems an opportune time to remind you of our own fundraising efforts this year. We recently reported that our chosen charity for 2015 is LOROS – a local hospice that is one of the largest adult hospices in the UK, and each year cares for over 2,500 people and their families across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. We are proud to be associated with this amazing charity and are already pouring in our efforts to raise money for them. There is a strong synergy between us in that we are both providers of specialist healthcare and both offering care a support to families with complex needs.

RND 2The LOROS  Accumulator Challenge has already started!   Being held between March and June this year, it provides the opportunity to take £50 and “grow” it in the most creative ways you can – as it is legal and ethical! Awards are presented for the “Most Innovative Idea”, “Most Engaging Idea” and “Most Money Raised.”

Next month, on the evening of April 25th, some of our team are taking part in the LOROS 10k Twilight Walk  through Leicester. As funny faces seems to be the running theme this season, you can also choose to be either a Saint or Sinner based on what smile you wear to the walk :) We promise to put some photos on here after the event!RND 3

Why not join us on the Twilight Walk? All the money raised goes to a worthwhile cause, plus you get to enjoy walking the streets of Leicester with an equally enthusiastic and welcoming bunch of people! You can still contribute to the event sponsoring the event by contact the Loros team here.

In this blog we will keep you posted on both the above activities –  and many more fundraising initiatives for LOROS  – throughout the year.
