People urged to sign up to events at home and abroad raising money for Myton Hospice

Leamington Editorial 7th Apr, 2018   0

TREKKING along the Great Wall of China or cycling across Warwickshire could help Myton Hospice continue its life-changing work.

The hospice is calling on fund-raisers to support them by signing up to one of its many events this summer.

On Sunday May 13 the charity’s annual Walk for Myton offers the chance to stepout with friends, family and even the dog to raise money.

There is the choice of a three mile, six mile or 12 mile walk, setting off from the hospice in Warwick anytime between 8.30pm and 10am. After completing their chosen route, people are invited to relax in the hospice grounds where there will be entertainment for all the family. Food will be available from a BBQ and ice cream van along with a the option to bring a picnic, have a drink or two and let the children enjoy the bouncy castle.

But for those who prefer two wheels to two legs, the charity will hold its Cycle Challenge through Warwickshire and the Cotswolds on Sunday August 5.

It has the options of 50km and 100km routes and those who pledge to raise £100 in sponsorship will receive a bespoke Myton jersey free.

And the hospice is looking for people to get in touch if they are interested in walking along the Great Wall of China to support its charity in May 2019.

Only a few sections of the Great Wall are still open but trekking 36km over five days will give access to parts which not all people are able to experience. There will also be the opportunity to enjoy the sights of Beijing for a few days after the trek.

The charity hopes to raise £42,000 from the event – enough to keep the Warwick hospice inpatient unit running for seven days.
