This week we are celebrating 40 years of The Myton Hospices and we want to share some of the highlights of the last four decades with you – after all none of our work would be possible without the support of people like you.
Our Warwick Myton Hospice opened its doors in September 1982 and 40 years on we continue to provide the very best in palliative and end of life care for people living with terminal illnesses, and their families, in Coventry and Warwickshire.
By supporting Myton you help to ensure that we can continue to provide our vital services free of charge, now and in the future – thank you!
Click the button below to see just some of the key milestones of the last 40 years and see for yourself the difference your support really does make to our patients and their loved ones.
As we look to the future we want to ensure that everyone who needs our services is able to access them and we want to reach out to people earlier in their illness, to be alongside them from diagnosis to death.

Whether you decide to have a party, bake sale or wear Myton red for a day, why not order your own Myton fundraising pack.
You could even set yourself a target by raising either £40, £400 or for the really ambitious £4,000 in aid of Myton!
Did you know?
We are not only about end of life care, often people who have a terminal illness have a lot of living left to do and we want to support them to have the best possible quality of life, for as long as possible.
When the time comes we believe people have the right to a good, natural death, either in one of our Inpatient beds or in their own home, with their loved ones supported.
Unbelievably, less than 20% of our funding comes from the NHS and this year alone we need to raise £9.1 million.
To achieve this we rely on your generosity and we hope you don’t mind us asking for your ongoing support.
Could you become a My Myton Member?
We would like to invite you to join our special friends and supporter’s scheme called ‘My Myton’ and give £5 or £10 per month.
When you join you will receive a red Myton hanging butterfly, a special thank you card and a quarterly newsletter by email.
Regular donations safeguard the future of the hospice so if you are able to please sign up by clicking here or by calling our Donor and Supporter Care Team on 01926 358383.
We caught up with our wonderful staff and volunteers to find out what Myton means to them...
We would love to hear what Myton means to you and for you to share your memories and experiences of Myton with us by email firstname.lastname@example.org or on social media by tagging @MytonHospices and using #Myton 40!
Thank you from all of us at Myton, our patients and their families.
