On Tuesday 28th November The Myton Hospices is hoping to perform something of a Christmas miracle by raising £3,220 in just 24 hours! This would be enough to fund an Inpatient bed for one week. It’s a big target we have set ourselves for #GivingTuesday but we hope with your help we will be able to achieve it!
We are joining charities across the globe in the world’s biggest one-day fundraising campaign which aims to encourage people to donate to those in need, at a time of year when many of us are thinking about giving and receiving presents and buying extra-special treats for the festive season.
Sadly life limiting and terminal illnesses don’t stop for Christmas, and neither does Myton; we try to make our Inpatient Units as much like home as possible for the patients and their families who spend the festive period with us and do our best to make what might be their last Christmas together extra-special.
We need to raise £9.2 million to continue providing our services free of charge, 365 days a year and we can’t do it without people like you!
#GivingTuesday is on 28th November and we will be encouraging people to donate via our social media pages, as well as sending out an email reminder on the day! For those who want to show their support a little earlier you can find our campaign online by clicking here.
