Local charity back with a Royal Event

LOROS announced come back of the Twilight Walk across Leicester

Last year's LOROS Twilight Walk

The annual LOROS Twilight Walk will be coming back to Leicester with a Royal Parade theme, in time with the country's pride for the platinum jubilee celebrations of Elizabeth II in June.


The 10km walk will be held on Saturday, May 28 across the city, starting and finishing from the King Power Stadium.


Anyone can join the local charity LOROS on the walk with great entertainment, food stalls and more.


The Royal Parade Theme

Walkers are encouraged to dress up in their finery; from Kings and Queens to fairy-tale inspired Prince and Princesses, Knights and Jesters.


Now in its twelfth year, the Twilight Walk brings walkers together in solidarity to raise money for their local Hospice and to remember loved ones. 


Last year, Twilight Walkers collectively walked over 53,000 miles and made each step count by raising almost £50,000 for the local charity.


Lisa Wilson, Events Co-ordinator at LOROS Hospice says; “We are thrilled to present our Royal Parade Twilight Walk in a year where Queen Elizabeth II has made history.


“The Twilight Walk continues to be Leicester’s biggest night out and we hope that this year will see even more supporters joining the fun in fancy dress to raise funds for LOROS.


“It’s such a high-energy, feel-good evening which really brings people together. With this theme, participants can really use their imagination for their royal-inspired outfits!”


Early-bird tickets for the event, which is being sponsored by Dunelm, can be bought at the price of just £10 each for a limited time only.


Janice Dunn, Head of Community at Dunelm adds; “We're really excited to be sponsoring the Twilight Walk again this year, we can't wait to see everyone's royal outfits and raise some important money for LOROS.”
