Terminally ill Myton Hospice patients to benefit from generous charity donation

Coventry Editorial 5th Feb, 2016 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

TERMINALLY ill patients at the Coventry Myton Hospice will benefit from a new hoist thanks to a charitable donation.

Coventry and District Charitable Trust donated £1,450 to the hospice, which will pay for a vital new hoist for one of the new nurse led beds.

The local Trust supports organisations in the fields of medicine, health and welfare in Coventry and Warwickshire by donating grants of up to £2,000.

Past Trust donations to Myton have helped pay for a range of equipment including occupational therapy equipment and a drugs fridge.

Chief executive at The Myton Hospices, Ruth Freeman, said: “We are delighted to have received the grant from Coventry and District Charitable Trust.

“We rely heavily on the generosity of local trusts and we would like to sincerely thank them for their continued support.”

All services at Myton are provided free of charge, meaning the charity relies heavily on charitable donations.

The Myton Hospices work with up to 1,000 terminally ill patients and their families each year across Coventry and Warwickshire, in their hospices, via their patient and family support services and in the community through Myton at Home.
