Redware raise £1,230 for local charity The Myton Hospices.
Redware partnered with The Myton Hospices as their charity of choice for 2012, raising £1,230 in a series of events across the year.
Throughout the year, Redware hosted a series of events raising a total of £615.09, which Redware matched, bringing the total of the donation to £1,230.18. The events included Geek Pride day, Jubilee celebrations and a Christmas Tote. On top of the events, a group of staff from Redware took to their bikes in August 2012 as part of a sponsored ride raising money for the charity. André Wigley, CEO of Redware comments:
“First of all, a big thank you to all the staff that donated throughout the year and joined in with our fundraising events. We make a commitment to support a charity each year and the The Myton Hospices are such an important cause to raise money for, as they directly affect hundreds of people and their families at a very important time of their life, across the Warwickshire region. I am really impressed by the amount of money donated and it was great to be able to double that, to maximise the support we can offer the charity.”
Myton are dedicated to supporting patients and their families by providing exceptional end of life care. By providing specialised care to their patients, the staff at Myton aim to meet the physical, psychological, spiritual and social needs, while at the same time supporting the families both through and after one of the most difficult times in their lives. Myton are also committed to training, supporting and encouraging other care providers to practice excellent palliative care.
Rosie Houghton, Corporate Fundraising Support Officer for The Myton Hospices commented:
“As the only in-patient hospice provider for Coventry and Warwickshire we were delighted to have such valuable support from Redware. This year alone we have to raise over £7 million to ensure we can continue to provide our free of charge services to our patients and their loved ones - this wouldn’t be possible without the support of organisations such as Redware and we can’t thank them enough for their support.”
All the money raised will go directly to supporting the work of the hospices, improving the care people receive during what often is a scary and unpredictable time in a person’s life.
