Leamington-based Box Factory is a long standing corporate supporter of Myton, making generous donations every Christmas to mark the season of good will.
But the Covid-19 Pandemic and the impact it has had on our fundraising has seen the company bring forward a portion of its annual donation to help us through these difficult times. The company has very generously donated £5,000 to Myton which will enable us to continue providing our services despite the impact Coronavirus has had on our fundraising.
Box Factory Managing Director Neil Price said he hoped the donation would inspire other companies to support Myton in its hour of need.
We have been supporting The Myton Hospices for 13 years and traditionally make a donation at Christmas time. But we know how hard Myton’s fundraising has been hit by Coronavirus, so thought making a donation now would be a big help when it is needed most.
I would like to urge fellow businesses who may have some charity money in reserves, or who are lucky enough to be in a financial position to do so, to donate that money now rather than hold onto it – Myton needs your support now, more than ever.
Over the years, Box Factory has donated many thousands of pounds to Myton, supporting our amazing work caring for terminally ill people across Coventry and Warwickshire.
And the ‘early Christmas present’ has been welcomed by Corporate Fundraiser Chris Willmott.
Box Factory are such fabulous supporters and I was delighted when I received the call from MD Neil Price to say the company wanted to break from tradition and make this wonderful donation to help Myton at this hugely difficult time,
Our fundraising was literally crippled overnight and it is thanks to the support of everyone who has donated, taken part in our virtual events, responded to our urgent appeal, or brought forward their usual donations that we have been able to maintain business as usual, government restrictions aside.
I would like to echo Mr Price’s appeal for anyone who can, businesses or individuals, to support us through these challenging times, and ensure we can continue to provide our amazing services to the people of Coventry and Warwickshire and their families. A huge thank you to Box Factory and to everyone for your amazing support over the past four months.
