    Entertainment...


    Our optional Scavenger Hunt is returning along the 3 and 6 mile routes for all the family to enjoy as well as entertainment at the refreshment stops.

    After you have completed your chosen route, you are invited to relax in the beautiful grounds of Warwick Myton Hospice where we will be offering a range of food and entertainment.

    From 11am, relish in the performances in our back garden, cool off with an ice cream and try your luck at the Spin to Win or one of our tombolas!

    You can also enjoy some tasty food at the BBQ and treat yourself to a well-deserved drink or two.

    With your help, we are hoping to raise £30,000 in sponsorship from this event, which could fund our Myton at Home service for three months meaning we can help more people when they need us most, now and in the future.

    And our top 10 fundraisers will receive an exclusive, limited-edition hoodie!

    The Difference Your Support Makes...


    The money you raise means we can make the most difficult times that little bit more manageable, and care for people like Nasra and her family…

    Nasra Hamid was a caring mother to three wonderful children and a loving grandmother to a beautiful grandson when she was diagnosed with stage 4 terminal cancer.

    Nadia, Nasra’s sister, said:

    My beautiful sister spent the majority of her life caring for others within her profession but also cared for both our parents before they died seven months apart.

    Nasra collapsed at home and was rushed to A&E. A scan showed evidence of a cancerous mass on her brain and cancerous masses on her vital organs, including her lungs, liver and kidneys.

    Nadia explained:

    Unfortunately, my sister and family were given a shocking prognosis that she would only have a couple of weeks to live. You can only imagine the multiple blows felt by the whole family and words cannot possibly describe the state of shock and grief that followed.

    Nasra wanted to die at home surrounded by loved ones. The family were able to help, support and care for her at home and communication with the palliative care team during their visits had become more regular due to worsening symptoms. Within two weeks of being discharged from hospital, it became evident that the cancer had become more aggressive. During a visit, the palliative care team mentioned our Myton at Home service.

    Nadia commented:

    Myton at Home was something I knew nothing about prior to my sister’s condition. My assumption was that The Myton Hospices only admitted patients at their site. I was so relieved to learn that Myton also offer home visits which provided much needed support for Nasra’s children, not only in providing experienced personal care but also for a little respite.

    Nasra received three visits a day from our Myton at Home team from the following day.

    Nadia added:

    We can’t thank the team enough, as they provided personal care to my sister during a time when the family were in a state of shock and disbelief, witnessing our beloved Nasra’s deteriorating health.

    “The team of carers including Andy and Sharon were exceptional and supportive. They came in smiling and their smiles and kindness really meant a lot under such extreme emotional pressures the family were faced with. The team always asked how we were doing and we felt valued as family members. They were also brilliant at making suggestions about how to ensure Nasra was as comfortable as possible. It was clear that they were experienced and ultimately very passionate and caring about their roles. This made the family feel at ease as it is not easy letting someone else take care of someone so dear and precious to you.

    Nasra died just four weeks after her diagnosis on the 23rd September 2023, just 51 years old.

    Looking back at their experience with Myton, Nadia said:

    Myton has a special place in our hearts and on our journey ahead. Not only did Nasra personally support and advocate the importance of The Myton Hospices and all the brilliant work they do, but in the end, it ultimately provided the attentive support and personal care that she would passionately provide to others.

    With your sponsorship and fundraising, you can help more people like Nasra when they need us most, now and in the future.
