Community Fundraiser for Myton, Lou Careless, visited the Gurdwara to accept a cheque for a ‘fabulous’ £6,000 – and to say thank you to everyone who made the donation possible.
The congregation has been supporting Myton since 2010, a charity close to the hearts of so many because of the care and support it has given to family, friends and loved ones over the years.
In that time, through regular donations at services and collections at other community events, a grand total of just over £15,000 has been donated – money that has made such a huge difference to Myton and those it cares for.
The latest donation – the biggest ever from the Gurdwara – was inspired by the loss of a hugely popular and much-loved member of the community, as well as all those previously cared for by Myton.
We are absolutely overwhelmed by this amazing donation, which will fund such vital work here at Myton caring for patients with a terminal illness and their families,
said Lou Careless.
A huge, huge thank you to everyone who donated and to the fundraising committee who made it all possible – we are ever-grateful.
Resham Malle, speaking on behalf of the Gurdwara, echoed these thanks.
We are always so impressed with the generosity of our members and are delighted to have been able to hand over this fabulous sum of money to The Myton Hospices. Not only is it a local charity, but so many members have been touched, directly or indirectly, by the amazing work Myton does. We are very proud to be associated with and able to support Myton – so thank you to everyone who donates so generously to this amazing cause.
