Myton Hospices charity launches second 'virtual walk' fund-raiser

Leamington Editorial 7th Apr, 2021   0

MYTON Hospice is urging supporters to put their best foot forward and take part in a virtual walk.

The charity – which cares for adults with life limiting illnesses across Coventry and Warwickshire – held its first Virtual Walk in the height of the pandemic last year.

And it is again urging residents to pull on their trainers on Sunday (May 9) for this year’s walk.

Walk for Myton is one of the hospice’s most popular events and sees hundreds of people take part to help raise vital funds. Coronavirus restrictions meant this wasn’t possible last year.

But, knowing how much supporters enjoy the event, the hospice created its Virtual Walk for Myton.

This year the charity is again asking people to take on a walk from their house or a nearby location in safe bubbles or groups, while still raising money.

Events manager Rebecca Richards said: “This is a great opportunity for you to get out for your daily exercise, remember a loved one, and enjoy some quality time alone or with your friends and family.

“We can’t wait for our events to get back to normal and enjoy them with our fabulous fundraisers, but in the meantime, we hope people will step out for the cause.

“Now, more than ever, we need your help to raise vital funds so we can continue to support those who need us most, now and in the future.”

Registration costs £5 for adults (£3 for children).
