They aim to raise a fantastic £2,000 from their challenge, which will be split between The Myton Hospices and NSPA – National Suicide Prevention Alliance – Coventry & Warwickshire Mind.
All parts of the challenge will be conducted in a safe, socially-distanced and rule-abiding manner.
The team were inspired to hit the fundraising trail by Margaret Keenan, the first patient in the world to receive the Covid vaccine at University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire on December 8 last year.
Anthony Baynham, a Director of the Leamington-based firm, said:
Margaret started something we will all benefit from and HB&O Financial Services decided to recognise this landmark occasion by basing our 2021 Charity Challenge around it.
Our aim is to exceed a combined distance of 410 miles by travelling virtually to key Covid-19 vaccine landmark locations in England – starting and ending at our offices in Leamington Spa.
To reach the 410 miles the team are aiming for an incredible average of 22 miles each – all of which must be completed in one day - Saturday 27th March.
With all charities having been hit hard by the Coronavirus Pandemic, the team wanted to choose two local causes to support from their efforts.
Myton is very close to the heart of many...
staff members and clients of HB&O Financial Services, who have received care from its three Hospices in Coventry, Warwick and Rugby and through its dedicated Myton at Home service, providing end-of-life care in patients’ own homes.
Anthony Baynham added:
We have many clients and close associates whose friends and family have benefitted from the exceptional end-of-life care offered by The Myton Hospices so we are delighted to be able to support them at such a vital time when their fundraising has been hit so hard by the Coronavirus pandemic.
As a company, we are proud and eager to support key charities in our local community.

Myton's Virtual Walk for Myton is back for 2021!
Every May, here at The Myton Hospices...
we are joined by hundreds of supporters who have signed up to our fabulous Walk for Myton event and who have opted to take on one of our three specially selected routes while raising money for Myton, often in memory of a loved one.
Coronavirus restrictions meant this wasn’t possible last year, but, knowing, how much our supporters love taking part in this flagship Myton event, we resolved that ‘the show must go on’ and turned it into our Virtual Walk for Myton – and we're doing the same this year!
