Box-it Central is pleased to be supporting The Myton Hospices throughout 2017/18. As our nominated charity, we will be taking part in a wide range of fundraising activities to support the wonderful work of The Myton Hospices. We hope you will support us to raise ‘Money for Myton’ as the charity celebrates 35 years of outstanding patient care.
The Myton Hospices has to raise over £8 million each year to continue providing life-enhancing care to people within our community. Last year, it supported more than 1400 people and their families across Coventry and Warwickshire, via its three hospices in Coventry, Warwick and Rugby, as well as patient and family support services provided through Myton at Home.
While The Myton Hospices provide end of life care, it is also pointed out that 50% of patients return home, and that not all patients have cancer. There are some very touching patient stories published on the charity’s website www.mytonhospice.org
It may come as a surprise to learn just how many different services The Myton Hospices provides. The hospices in Coventry and Warwick have inpatient units, and also provide day care, while Rugby is a day hospice only. All three are supported by teams of trained healthcare professionals and volunteers. Myton at Home is a 24/7 home service giving people the precious support they need in their final weeks and days, in the comfort of familiar surroundings. Other patient services include occupational therapy, physiotherapy, Lymphoedema services, complimentary therapy and spiritual care.
There is family support too, and a special ‘Rainbow Ripples’ and ‘Myteens’ service for children and teenagers affected by the illness or death of a close family member.
All of Myton’s services are provided free of charge, and they rely on the support of local businesses and the community to raise the money they need to provide their care. That is why, the entire team at Box-it Central will be pulling out all the stops to raise money for this amazing charity. We will keep you updated on all our fundraising activities over the next 12 months for The Myton Hospices.
