Toys on the Table
Toys on the Table work in the Leicester and Leicestershire area, to provide new toys and gifts during the festive season for children who might not otherwise receive anything.
Toys on the Table started in the early 1980s, when the Leicester Round Table 39 established the project. In recent years it has become a separate independent Registered Charity, run by a Board of Trustees, who represent community service organisations including Rotary International, Inner Wheel, the Society of Leicestershire & Rutland Golf Captains, together with workers and volunteers from the City and County Social Services.
With fantastic support from the public, the Toys on the Table Appeal has enabled thousands of children to receive gifts throughout the Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland areas.
LOROS Hospice cares for over 2,500 people across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland every year. They deliver free, high-quality, compassionate care and support to terminally ill patients, their family and carers. The care they provide is tailored to the needs of each patient by a team of dedicated health and social care professionals.
LOROS specialises in holistic, multidisciplinary care, focused on the whole person and including family and carers. The care given takes into account the patients’ physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs as well as their own choices. Family members are also supported in adjusting to loss and bereavement. Patients are treated at the Hospice and in the community based upon clinical need, regardless of background and the ability to pay.
It costs LOROS £8.2 million each year to be able to deliver their services, £6 million of which has to be raised from the local community.
