The staff at the Myton Hospices in Warwickshire are thanking the public for helping them raise thousands of pounds this week.

On Tuesday November 28 the charity managed to raise £6,140 on #GivingTuesday

Myton Hospices joined charities across the globe for the one-day fundraising campaign, which aimed to encourage people to think of those in need.

The charity, which has hospices in Warwick, Rugby and Coventry had aimed to raised £3,220, which would be enough to fund an inpatient bed for one week.

But thanks to the support the people of Coventry and Warwickshire they nearly doubled their target.

The £6,140 raised would be enough to fund an inpatient bed for almost two weeks.

Ruth Freeman, Myton Hospices’ chief executive, said: “I want to say a massive thank you to everybody who donated to our #GivingTuesday campaign.

“The money we raised is enough to fund an inpatient bed for almost two weeks, which is an amazing amount.”
