THE FABULOUS new coffee shop at Coventry Myton Hospice has been officially opened by the Lord Mayor of Coventry.
Mayor Lindsley Harvard was joined at the opening by the charity’s Chief Executive Officer, Ruth Freeman, the Chair and Vice Chair of the General Charities of the City of Coventry, Myton staff, volunteers, patients and families.
The coffee shop is open Monday to Friday from 10am to 4pm and is run by a team of twelve newly recruited volunteers, serving coffee, specialist teas, hot chocolate, cakes, muffins and cookies.
All profits will go towards funding patient care – making the dedication of the volunteers running the coffee shop even more vital.
The facility will offer a welcoming, friendly environment for Myton staff, volunteers, patients and families to take time out and will be an information hub for those wanting to find out more about Myton.
Myton CEO Ruth Freeman said: “We are very proud to unveil our fabulous new coffee shop and hope it will offer a relaxing place for people to meet in the hospice.
“We’re expecting this will be an area where people considering whether Myton is right for them or a loved one can come and sit in a calm and non-clinical environment to watch the Myton world go by.
“We hope this will help to dispel some of the fears they may have.”
The coffee shop was funded by a grant from the General Charities of the City of Coventry.
Coventry Building Society has also made a donation to fund outside furniture for the Coffee Shop.
