We were recently contacted by Annamarie Varnham, a Trust Officer for The Myton Hospice, to see if we could offer any support during these challenging times, to ensure that their services continue to run.
The Myton Hospices offer specialist care and support to adult patients and their families in Coventry and Warwickshire. The patients have terminal conditions such as heart failure, cancer, motor neurone disease, Parkinson’s and COPD. All their services are free of charge. Myton believe that everyone matters for every single moment of their life and focus on enhancing life when cure is no longer an option.
The Myton Hospices are a charity and every year they need to raise £9.2 million of the £12 million they need to support the people of Coventry and Warwickshire. Due to the impact Coronavirus has had on their ability to raise vital funds they expect to see a significant drop in voluntary income of somewhere in the region of £2 million this year.
Whilst they have adapted the way they deliver some of their services to support more vulnerable people in the community and remotely, their commitment to providing the very best palliative and end of life care has not waivered.
Therefore, it was without doubt that the MPA Charitable Foundation wanted to assist, especially given the extra strain that their services have seen during the last 12 months, agreeing a one off donation of £500.00. This was greatly received by Annamarie and the team.
Keep up the fantastic work!
