We joined charities across the globe in the world’s biggest one-day fundraising campaign which aims to encourage people to donate to those in need.
Our aim was to perform something of a Christmas miracle so we can support more people and their families living with life-limiting illnesses.
Our amazing supporters made this happen and with your help, we raised over £19,000!
This incredible amount could fund our Inpatient Unit for four days so we can support more people like Owen, Laura and Luna when they need us most.
Laura and Owen’s life was turned upside down in March 2020. Not only were they experiencing Covid-19 and the national lockdown, but Owen had just been diagnosed with bowel cancer that had spread to his liver.
To add to the rollercoaster they were already on, the couple found out they were pregnant two weeks later.
Having Myton’s support at the worst time of our lives was a blessing. If it wasn’t for Myton, Owen would’ve been in hospital, meaning I couldn’t have seen him.
Myton gave me that time with him and I can’t repay them for that. We were able to be a family and I can’t put into words how important that is to me.
From the doctors to the nurses, and the volunteers, everyone was amazing. They made sure Owen was comfortable and not in any pain. He deteriorated rather quickly so knowing he was comfortable reassured me. They really looked after us.
Christmas is meant to be the time for celebration, but for us it will always be about remembering my husband and Luna’s dad.
We couldn’t have raised this fabulous amount without some special people! You may recognise Margaret Kite, an incredible fundraiser who has single-handedly raised thousands for several deserving charities, including Myton. Margaret raised £478 on the day at a store collection!
Thank you to Margaret and every other superhero who donated and helped raise awareness for Giving Tuesday this year.
Our vital work wouldn’t be possible without you and we really appreciate each and every one of you!
