T-minus 3 months and counting until the LOROS Hospice Rocket Round Leicester giant rocket art trail lands on 19th July, before blasting off on Sunday, 26th September.
Everyone at Morningside Pharmaceuticals Ltd is incredibly excited about our sponsored rocket entitled ‘Hopes Dream and Wishes’ which will be among 40 giant ‘out of this world’ instillations scattered around Leicester city centre.
We can’t reveal the full design yet but here’s a sneak peak of the very talented Lynne Hollingsworth putting the finishing touches to it. As you can see we’re nearing Lift Off!
Visitors to the art trail will steer a voyage of discovery through the city’s streets and open spaces and help even life-long Leicester dwellers discover something new about where they live. Each Rocket will be designed by a professional artist and sponsored by local businesses. With a likely footfall of around 300,000 people, bringing in an expected £6 million to the local economy, Rocket Round Leicester will form a pivotal part of the city’s post-pandemic economic recovery, as well as a brilliant day out for everyone.
After the trail ends there will be the chance to say a final ‘goodbye’ at a Farewell Event, before each Rocket is auctioned to raise funds for LOROS Hospice to enable them to continue to care for over 2,500 terminally ill local people.
