THE MYTON Hospices are looking to create forever memories for patients and their loved ones.
The newly created Forever Memories Fund will be there for anything and everything, from arranging weddings or birthdays at the hospices, to home visits by Santa with his sleigh.
The Carl Lewis Foundation have been instrumental in the creation of the Forever Memories Fund. It was set up to honour Carl’s memory and create a legacy in his name following his death from pancreatic cancer aged just 34.
Foundation trustees Angie Archer and Jane Ibbett have donated £1,000 to kick start the Forever Memories Fund, and have pledged even more to come.
Angie and Jane, both regular supporters and volunteers for Myton, said: “We know from personal experience how important it is for patients and their loved ones to spend time together making memories.
“The foundation is thrilled to be working in partnership with The Myton Hospices to launch the Forever Memories Fund, helping to make a difference to people going through such a difficult time.”
Myton is hoping others will join the foundation and support the Forever Memories Fund.
A spokesperson said: “If you would like to join The Carl Lewis Foundation in pledging your support for the Forever Memories Fund and help Myton ensure they can continue to provide these magical moments by donating, they would love to hear from you.
“What your donations are used for will depend entirely on each individual patient’s wishes. This could be arranging private transport to their favourite beauty spot for a family picnic, transport to enable quicker admittance to Myton when patients need their care, or an incredible experience or activity for patients and their families to enable lasting memories to be made.”
