The Myton Hospices needs your help to raise £50,000 from this year's Cycle Challenge!
This will help ensure we can continue to provide our services free of charge to people with a terminal or life limiting illness, and their families, when they need us most.
This year we have to raise £9.6million of the £12.3 million we need, we cant do it without support from people like you.
Hundreds of cyclists will pedal their way around the beautiful Warwickshire countryside and the Cotswolds, or take on our new Mini Myton cycle, on Sunday 4th August to raise money for Myton!
Your sponsorship will enable Myton to help more people like the Spicer family.
Dad was in and out of the hospice for the last few months of his life and it made those last few months bearable. The staff were impeccable - so helpful and caring. It wasnt just about medical care; it was about the family and helping us through that horrible time. I cannot thank the staff enough for everything they did for us during that time.
Naomi Spicer and her boyfriend Greg travelled from France to take on The Myton Hospices Cycle Challenge in 2017!
Cycling the 100 mile route wasnt enough for Greg, he also decided last minute to cycle the 1000km distance from their home in the French Alps to the ferry port in Caen rather than flying to England.
The couple decided to take part to raise money in memory of Naomis dad, Philip, who died at Warwick Myton Hospice in 2012.
Greg and I met not long after my dad died they never got to meet so Greg was really looking forward to doing the Cycle Challenge in his memory. Its very hilly where we live and Greg is a very keen cyclist so he challenged himself to cycle even further! I did the 100km ride with my mum and he did the100 mile route and we raised just over £2,000!
To reach our target of £50,000 we rely entirely on you raising sponsorship. Have a look at the difference the money you raise will make:
£50 covers the cost of two hours specialist nursing care.
£175 is the upkeep cost of our relatives accommodation for a week.
£460 will fund an inpatient bed for one day.
£2,000 would buy a patient specific recliner chair to enable patients to spend time out of bed.
