Myton volunteer Margaret Kite has been a regular fixture in the shop, where government guidance has allowed, collecting money, along with members of the lottery team signing people up to the charity’s weekly £1 lottery.
The Inpatient Unit at Warwick Myton Hospice has also received regular donations of flowers to brighten the day of patients, loved ones, volunteers and staff.
Myton community fund-raiser Louise Careless said: “We have thoroughly enjoyed working with the staff at Marks and Spencer on the Parade – their support in choosing Myton as their charity of the year has been invaluable and we are thrilled by the money they have raised. Thank you to all the staff and the customers who helped raise such a fantastic amount. Now, more than ever, support from companies like this is vital as we continue to be impacted by coronavirus.”
