RESIDENTS and businesses are being invited to donate new or un-used gifts to help boost Myton Hospices’ annual Access Self Storage Christmas charity appeal.
Caring for terminally ill patients and working tirelessly is just part of the day-to-day job for staff at Myton Hospice.
The latest appeal will ensure residents of the hospice who are away from their families during the festive season will have reason to be cheerful by receiving various gifts donated by kind-hearted supporters.
Last year, more than 500 gifts – including books, games, clothing and chocolates – were donated, and staff are hopeful that figure can be topped this season.
Staff have set themselves the challenge of filling a 50 square foot room at Access Coventry, which will collect any donations between now and Saturday, December 10.
Hannah Paulie of The Myton Hospices said: “It’s a great start to the Christmas season to hear that Access Self Storage Coventry has chosen Myton to receive gifts collected by the store.
“These donations by men, women, businesses and even children in our community really help to lift the spirits of the people we care for in our hospice.
“Many of our residents will experience a different Christmas this year to the Christmas they might have had before.”
Access Self Storage Coventry store manager Nick Hand said: “We really believe in the great work the Myton Hospice does.
“We’re on a mission to beat our record and make Christmas 2016 the best year yet for patients and loved ones who will be spending this festive season at Myton.
“The collection is a reminder to everyone that there are people out there who really care, and who are happy to put a smile on someone’s face they haven’t even met.”
All donations can be left at the reception of Access Self Storage Coventry where they will be stored safely until they are delivered to Myton Hospice after Monday, December 12.
