What is Myton Hospice?

Myton provides specialist care and support for terminally ill patients and their families in Coventry & Warwickshire. They provide high-quality care through their 3 hospices and in the community to those whose condition no longer responds to curative treatment, from diagnosis to death. They meet their patient’s physical, psychological, spiritual, and social needs and ensure their families are supported both through and after this difficult time. They aim to provide adults in Coventry & Warwickshire, who are living with a terminal illness, the best end-of-life care possible.

Where is Myton Hospice located?

Myton Hospice has 3 hospices located across Coventry & Warwickshire:

  1. Rugby Myton Hospice, located in the grounds of St.Cross Hospital
  2. Coventry Myton Hospice, located in the grounds of Walsgrave/Coventry University Hospital
  3. Warwick Myton Hospice, located in the grounds of Warwick Hospital

What services does Myton Hospice provide?

Myton’s work centres on enhancing life, empowering patients to achieve their goals and involving them in decisions about their current and future care. By focussing on their wellbeing and seeing them and not the illness they aim to help them reengage with their lives and give them more quality time with their families and loved ones. Myton understands how precious every moment is when you or someone you care for has an illness that can’t be cured, and that is why they work so hard to ensure those final years, months, weeks or even hours are as good as they can be.

Help The Warwickshire Review raise money for Myton Hospice…

How has COVID-19 impacted Myton?

Myton provides dedicated care and support for terminally ill patients and their families in their hospices and in the community. They need to raise over £9 million every year to continue to do this. That’s £750,000 every month!

To reach their fundraising target they rely on their 27 charity shops, annual fundraising events, third party events, donations, supporter organised events, supermarket donation collections & their own lottery. All of these sources of income have either been completely canceled, postponed or experienced a huge reduction in volume; leaving them genuinely concerned about the impact the Coronavirus outbreak is already having on their ability to raise vital funds.

Here’s Ruth Freeman, Myton’s CEO explaining what they’re currently experiencing…

We (The Warwickshire Review) are raising £5,000 for 5 Warwickshire charities (£1,000 to each charity), to help them through the current emergency. Myton is one of the 5 charities we’re fundraising for. If you’d like to donate/contribute to our fundraiser, please click the button below. THANK YOU
