BBC presenter Anne Davis to host a garden party in aid of Loros Hospice

BBC East Midlands Today presenter and LOROS patron Anne Davies, is hosting a summer garden party at Markham House, near Melton Mowbray, on Sunday 17 June, to raise funds for LOROS Hospice.

The exclusive event promises to provide a perfect summer afternoon with Pimms on the lawn and a mouth-watering buffet, in the beautiful grounds of Markham House, home to Sir David and Lady Samworth.

The garden party is sponsored by Leicester-based Westerby Group that includes Westerby Investment Management and Westerby Trustee Services.

Les McLintic, Westerby’s Group Chairman, said: “Westerby is delighted to sponsor LOROS. We hope this year’s garden party raises a record amount for their work that touches the lives of so many local people facing a terminal illness. Their vital support and care makes such a difference to patients, families and carers.”

LOROS raised £10k at its last garden party and are hoping to match, or even beat that total this year. Laura Betts, Fundraising Manager at LOROS said: “Once again we are hugely grateful to Sir David and Lady Samworth for their generosity in allowing us use of their grounds, without which the garden party would not be possible.

“With a tempting buffet, delicious desserts and the gorgeous backdrop of Markham House and gardens, all we need is a sunny afternoon to make it absolutely perfect.

“While we can’t promise the weather, we can guarantee our guests an unforgettable experience with a warm welcome from LOROS patron Anne Davies.”

Tickets are priced at £35, and are available from LOROS Fundraising, Groby Road, Leicester LE3 9QE or by emailing fundraising@loros.co.uk.
