LOROS Hospice smashed a fundraising target of £10,00 by raising over £12,000 at a summer garden party sponsored by Leicester-based Westerby Group.

 The Garden Party, held in the beautiful grounds of Markham House, home to Sir David and Lady Samworth, was hosted by BBC East Midlands Today presenter and LOROS patron Anne Davies.

Laura Betts, Fundraising Manager at LOROS said: “It was a privilege working with The Westerby Group on such a fabulous event. Group Chairman Les McLintic and Managing Director Steve Harvey promote a wonderful ethos at the Westerby Group which is to support local charities and give something back to the community they live and work in.”

The event provided a perfect summer afternoon with Pimms on the lawn and a mouth-watering buffet with delicious desserts served in a marquee, supported by Burleighs Gin with catering provided by Dimblebee.

 Westerby Group Chairman, Les McLintic said the event’s success was built on a brilliant charity partnership. “Westerby Group would like to thank LOROS for all their hard work and commitment in arranging such a wonderful afternoon. This couldn’t have happened without the support of Sir David and Lady Samworth whose generosity has helped to raise funds for local people needing hospice care.”

Laura said: “The LOROS Garden Party was a fantastic opportunity for The Westerby Group to entertain clients, family and friends and at the same time help to raise over £12,000 for LOROS, an incredible amount which we are all thrilled to have achieved. This amazing amount of money could fund one of our specialist nurses for just over a fortnight, helping us to provide care for our patients and their family members every day of the year. LOROS are proud to have the support of The Westerby Group and want to thank them for their valuable, on-going support”.
