Loros Rocket Round Leicester event sponsored by OEM

FAMILY GIVEAWAY COMPETITION… Rocket Round Leicester is here!


Rocket Round Leicester is a 10-week charity trail organised by local hospice charity LOROS. There will be 40 giant rockets secretly and intricately placed around Leicester from 19th July, and your job is to find them all. These rockets are sponsored by many organisations, some small and some big, and we are one of them!

Several events are being held during these 10 weeks, including different themed weeks like: Creative Week, Space Week, Music Week, Wellness Week and many more, which you can find here. There are lots of activities you and your family can get involved in. 

LOROS has developed an interactive trail app that you can use for the trail around Leicester, collecting as many rockets as possible – a super fun activity for families and children with some great rewards up for grabs.

Each time you collect a rocket in Leicester, you will receive a reward. When you find the OEM rocket, your reward will be an entry into a competition to win one of three family days out in Leicestershire! You must download the app and collect our rocket if you want to enter our competition.

Please read our terms and conditions. 


Your job is to discover and collect all the rockets around Leicester using the LOROS app*. 

Here are the steps to take part:

  • Download the app* (proceeds go to LOROS charity)
  • Visit the rockets in Leicester and “check in”, each rocket has a 4-digit code
  • The app will locate you when you are in the correct area 
  • Use the 4-digit code on the rocket to unlock your reward
  • Unlock bonus points when you get to milestones
  • Click the link to the competition page and enter!

You have until 26th September to do this, so get your skates on and get searching! Get Involved, download the app and get ready for blast-off.


Once you have downloaded the app, which costs £1.99, your aim is to find and collect the rockets to win rewards.


Win family tickets for:

  • The National Space Centre,
  • Twycross Zoo and 
  • The Tropical Bird Centre

Plenty for you and your family to do over the summer!

We wish you the best of luck and can’t wait to give away these amazing, fun-filled prizes. Most importantly, we look forward to contributing to LOROS as much as we can.

OEM can’t wait for you to see our rocket, designed by the amazing local artist Helen Sibson. 

 “Without giving too much away, the design captures Leicester’s vibrant, colourful and diverse side and we are really excited to see this beautiful work of art come alive,” says Richard  Armstrong, Managing Director of OEM.
