NEARLY £4,000 has been raised for Coventry Myton Hospice by the opening to the public of beautiful Styvechale Gardens.
It took place in June in conjunction with the National Garden Scheme’s events.
A total of £3,910 was raised for the charity which has hospices in Coventry, Rugby and Warwick.
Organisers say it is a record fundraising total for the annual event, and the first time Styvechale Open Gardens chose Myton as its designated charity.
Visitors enjoyed seven varied gardens in Styvechale, Coventry, as well as cream teas and a raffle.
Sarah Stallard, community and events fundraising manager at The Myton Hospices, said: “Myton is incredibly grateful to the Styvechale Open Gardens group for choosing to support us through this year’s event.
“It was a fantastic day and the weather was beautiful which really helped encourage people to come and enjoy the stunning gardens.
“Thank you to the group for organising the event, and to everyone who supported Myton on the day.”
Myton Hospices works on the principle that ‘everyone matters for every single moment of their life.’
It focuses on ‘enhancing life when cure is no longer an option.’
It provides the only inpatient units in Coventry and Warwickshire.
Last year, the charity supported more than 1,400 people and their families, in the three hospices, via patient and family support services, and in the community through Myton at Home.
