People in Harborough are being asked to volunteer their time for the hospice charity Loros by help-
ing at the Leicester Marathon which takes place at Victoria Park on Sunday, October 25.

The charity needs people to help at the start and finish line in Victoria Park, as well as along the route.

A spokesman for Loros, the Leicestershire and Rutland Hospice, said: “The event is such a huge occasion for the city and the Leicester Marathon always receives such fantastic feedback on the difference our upbeat and friendly volunteers make to the runners.

“We are looking for volunteers to help with marshalling, looking after water points, handing out goody bags on the finish line, set up and much more.

“You can also sign up as a team of volunteers or as an individual.”

To find out more, people are asked to send an email to or telephone 0116 2318484.”
