A CITY recruitment provider has decided to choose The Myton Hospices as its charity for the next 18 months.
Staff from eResponse Group voted to help the hospice group with its vital fundraising to care for cancer patients and support their families.
Support will see eResponse staff take part in organised events on behalf of the charity – and the firm itself will take part in various fundraising activities to secure further funds.
The backing came about following a unique employee vote where bosses at the company asked colleagues to nominate a cause close to their hearts before counting the votes.
With hospices in Coventry, Rugby and Warwick, the charity must raise at least £8.4million each year to provide their services.
Hannah Morris, partnership manager at The Myton Hospices, said: “We were delighted when we heard we had been chosen as eResponse Group’s charity.
“It’s a new partnership for us, with a company that has a great reputation.
“They’re helping us raise much-needed funds.”
During the past 18 months, eResponse has raised £38,000 for The Mia Foundation to support Rugby schoolgirl Mia Williams with adaptations to her home.
Mia has epilepsy, cerebral palsy and was born without eyes.
Paul Alekna, co-founder and CEO of eResponse Group, said: “We are rooted in our communities so it’s entirely fitting that our staff picked a charity based right here in Coventry.
“The Myton Hospices provide such a vital service at what can be a terrible time for the patients and their families.
“We are looking forward to doing all we can to help them over the next 18 months.”
