Myton is lucky to have an invaluable team of almost 1,000 volunteers who help us within the hospices, and also, as part of the Fundraising team, help us raise the £8 million needed each year to continue offering our services free of charge to the people of Coventry and Warwickshire.
Whether volunteering on reception, as complementary therapists, drivers or as part of our pastoral care teams within the hospices, or, as part of the Fundraising team, helping in our 20 charity shops, at our events and collections and as lottery collectors, we simply couldn't operate without them.
We estimate that if we paid all our volunteers the minimum wage for their hours, it would cost us an extra £1 million a year to run our hospices.
Many of our volunteers have been with us for several years and get great enjoyment and satisfaction from being a part of our team. But in addition, we are always looking for more to welcome to the team. As our need for funding grows, so does our reliance on volunteer help. We’d love you to join the team!
