Public art project Rocket Round Leicester went on auction yesterday (WED,OCT13).

Rocket Round Leicester managed to raise £153,095 for the LOROS Hospice.

LOROS Hospice is a hospice in Leicester that provides care and support for adults who suffer from a terminal illness and their families.

The De Montfort University sponsored event was a success as all 39 rockets that were on auction have been sold.

Creative artists from all over the country took part in the project and painted each of the 39 rockets.

All of the rockets were painted in different designs such as the Yin and Yang by artist Adam Khalifa. He called the chance to participate an ‘amazing experience’.
