Myton Hospice is the Young Professionals nominated charity for the next twelve months. They’re a local charity with a presence across Warwickshire. The Myton team provide high quality, specialist care to people whose condition no longer responds to curative treatment, from diagnosis to death. All their services are provided free of charge and are available to all patients depending on need. They help both patients and their families deal with their symptoms and any emotional distress. Myton needs to raise £8 million every year in order to keep up their fantastic offering and we hope to play our small part in this.
We’re really keen for as many young professionals as possible to get involved. We hope that you will want to support this and give something back to the local community, whilst also making new connections and having some fun.
We’ve already introduced the Thirsty Thursday raffle which has had prizes such as tickets to a Coventry Blaze game and tickets to see Coventry City FC, and we’ve been delighted with the amount of support this has had.
We also have Myton’s ‘Glow in the City’ event on coming up on Saturday 25th April. This is a 5km route around Coventry. The short distance means that you won’t need to train and you can even walk it in under an hour. There’s also the added benefit of an after-glow party where you can enjoy a well-earned drink, enjoy live music and socialise with fellow young professionals. And you can do all of this whilst helping a great local charity! Registration costs just £25 including your own glow pack and T-shirt to help you light up the night and raise money for a great cause. If you’d like to get involved email our Charities Officer, Paige Howitt, at Paige.Howitt@sfb.uk.com as soon as possible.
There’ll be plenty more activities to come this year so look out for details both here and through our young professionals mailing list. If you’re not on the mailing list and would like to join email me now and I’ll add you.
