President's Charity 2017Myton Hospice Logo 225x138

At Myton we know that making someone feel better is not just about medicine – sometimes holding someone’s hand or taking the time to listen to their fears makes the greatest difference.

In the last 12 months, we have worked with and supported over 2,300 patients and their families across Coventry and Warwickshire.  This is in our hospices, via our patient and family support services and in the community through Myton at Home.

We have to raise just over £8 million each year to continue providing our care - we wouldn’t be able to do this without people like you.

 

I have chosen The Friends of the Hospital of St Cross, Rugby as my charity for the year. This is a local charity which seeks to enhance the experience of patients in Rugby through the delivery of a range of voluntary services at the hospital and shows appreciation for the NHS staff serving the community. They are particularly interested in supporting initiatives which bring services nearer to the people of Rugby. 

The charity is staffed entirely by volunteers and so aim that 98p in every pound donated is spent on equipment , which is over and above that which can be provided by the NHS, for use at St Cross and in the local Community and Mental Health Services. The total value of such donations, in 2013, was over £105,000 thanks to the generosity of our supporters.
