Rotary Club Of Warwick

Jul23 - Myton Hospice continues to care

For their meeting on 22nd July club members were updated on the continuing work of Myton Hospice.
Anita Burrows, who is well known to many members as she has been fund-raising for the organisation in this area for fourteen years, came to advise the club on the continuing work of Myton Hospices in Warwick, Rugby and Coventry.   She explained that it is necessary to raise £8 million a year to keep their work going in the 3 locations, offering day care, in-patient care, and the new “At Home service” to people with terminal illnesses and providing relief for carers of other seriously ill patients.   Whilst it was initially set up for cancer patients the hospices now care for people with other serious illnesses who need the comfort and support that they are able to provide.
Whilst at Myton Hospice,  day care patients may get personal care, i.e. a bath, or hairdressing or massage, and many other small services which most of us take for granted, to help them live with their illness, as well as having the company of others and expert nursing care.
Their charity shops, organised events such as the popular Santa run and summer fete, and all the help provided by charitable giving enable them to maintain their services, and whilst receiving a cheque from President Jon Wassall,  Anita thanked the club for all its support over the years.
