  • To reach our target we rely entirely on you raising sponsorship!

    Online Fundraising

    Setting up a JustGiving fundraising page is one of the most effective and easy ways of encouraging families, friends and colleagues to sponsor you. By setting up a JustGiving page, you can share your fundraising page via email and on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter as often as you want to.

    Having an online fundraising page also means you do not have to physically collect money after the event, plus Gift Aid is automatically calculated and processed.

    If you haven't already why not set up your online fundraising page through JustGiving with just a few simple clicks. Find out how to set up a JustGiving page by clicking here.

    Will you make it onto our Wall of Fame? Keep an eye out to see if you are one of our top fundraisers!

    Every participant that raises over £75 will receive a Myton branded water bottle. Don’t stop there though! The top fundraiser from this challenge will win a four tickets to Warwick Castle!

    If you are NOT using JustGiving to raise your sponsorship then please get in touch with so we know you should be receiving a water bottle.

    Facebook Fundraising

    Please let us know, by emailing the Events Team, if you set up a Fundraiser on Facebook; we receive limited information from Facebook which makes it extremely hard for us to link the donation to your fundraising otherwise.

    Match Funding

    These are two words charities love to hear! Many employers offer match funding which means they will match what you have raised (to a certain amount), potentially doubling what you raise for Myton! Why not speak to your employer to find out if this is something they will do?

    Gift Aid

    UK taxpayers can raise an additional 25% through Gift Aid at no extra cost to themselves. To ensure we can claim Gift Aid we need the full name, home address and postcode of your sponsors – and of course, don’t forget to tick the Gift Aid box!

  • With your sponsorship and support we can be there for more people like Nigel…

    Nigel aged 57 worked as a postman in Leamington Spa until he was diagnosed with Kidney Cancer in January 2021. The cancer quickly spread and on April 12th 2021 Nigel became paraplegic and double incontinent.

    Nigel describes how he told himself he had two choices; he could moan but it wouldn’t change anything or he could accept that he had limited time to live and get on with it – he chose the latter.

    From this point on Nigel used Facebook to raise awareness of how difficult life is for paraplegic people and people with disabilities and to highlight some of the things people take for granted when they are well and able-bodied.

    When Nigel returned home from hospital district nurses would go in and wash him but he longed for a bath and contacted a number of organisations to see if this could be arranged.

    After facing many knock-backs he contacted us at Warwick Myton Hospice and explained his situation over the phone – “I want to die clean!” he said, and it became our mission to make this happen and enable Nigel to enjoy a bath.

    In September Nigel came in and had his first bath in months, he spent three hours with us relaxing in the specialist bath that we hoisted him in and out of. Nigel returned a couple more times for baths.

    Nigel has since been admitted as an inpatient to Warwick Myton Hospice and wants to share his story to express his gratitude to Myton and let people know the difference this made to his quality of life. He also told us that his earlier visits made being admitted onto the ward much easier.

    We are so pleased that we have been able to help Nigel to fulfil his wish and be there to support him and his wife when they needed us most.
