As part of LOROS's specialist care in controlling pain and other distressing symptoms as well as emotional, spiritual and social care, which allows patients to live as normal a life as possible, they offer some important outside space to them and their families. Part of this space is a balancing pond, summer house and decking, which is in need of some restoration work and a general tidy up.
When the RBS Leicester Telephony Sales team - who are based in Bede Island, Leicester - found out about this work, they quickly volunteered to help with painting fences and benches, clearing guttering and both washing and staining the wooden decking. The work has taken place over a number of weeks and has involved 28 members of the RBS Telephony Sales team, and has taken 256 hours to complete.
Rani Chana, from RBS's Leicester Telephony Sales who lead the team of volunteers, said: "When we first started work on the grounds at LOROS, we knew that it would be a big job, but also one that needed and was worth doing. It has taken a lot of hours to complete, but it is so satisfying to know we have made a real difference to the people who use and rely on LOROS for support. It really has been a pleasure giving our support to this important local charity."
In addition to the support given to LOROS, the RBS Leicester Telephony Sales team have undertaken volunteer work at Rainbows in Loughborough and Dove Cottage in Market Harborough as part of their work with Help the Hospices.
