LOROS DJ charity night hits Leicester tomorrow

LOROS are set to put on the “ultimate” charity night this Saturday, December 3.

In co-operation with a local DJ, LOROS are set to put on a musical night to raise money for their services and hospices in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

Local DJ and event organiser, Adam Watts, 26, said: “The whole reason I put this event together is because LOROS helped my granddad before he died.”

The event will take place from 7.00pm until 12.00am at New Parks Social Club, on Battersbee Road, tomorrow.

The night will include four DJ’s playing music from throughout the years, with a special focus on reggae, house and R’n’B, as well as your traditional charity raffle.

Adam will be one of the four performing DJ’s under his alias, DJ Wattsy, and is set to put on a specialist set full of “exclusive mixes, remixes and house mash ups”, whilst the fellow slots will be filled by his friends.

Adam said: “They’re mates of mine who DJ at mobile discos as well as run their own, and they’re all across Leicester and Nottingham, I asked them if they wanted to join me and they wanted to do it.”

Tickets are £5 for adults, and children can attend for free, all proceedings raised will go straight to the charity. Advanced tickets can be bought from Dave’s 303 in Aikman Avenue.

LOROS specialise in helping people living with cancer and other terminal illnesses, and provide free support to adult patients and families, such as Adam’s.

They currently have over 28 charity shops in the county, their own LOROS lottery and over 1100 volunteers.

Despite not working for LOROS directly, Adam is known across Leicester for the various fundraising events he puts on for various charities.

Adam said: “I did one last year, which was for cancer research. I usually do them once a year, or whenever I can, what dates are available in what venues.

“I’m not setting any goals, I’m just helping people raise money and doing the best I can, and it helps put my name around with these charity events.”

However, Adam did state that if the event was a success that he would do another one for LOROS in 2017.
