Introducing our new charity partners for 2015-16

Posted on 25 August 2015

As part of the Midcounties Regional Community Programme, we are delighted to announce that we will be supporting Myton Hospice as our new Warwick and Leamington charity partner, and St Giles Hospice as our Walsall charity partner for 2015-2016.

About Myton Hospice

Myton Hospice has three locations across Warwick, Coventry and Rugby. They provide high quality, specialist care to people whose conditions no longer respond to treatment.

With over £8million needed to cover all operational costs each year, Myton Hospice relies on the support of organisations like The Midcounties Co-operative to continue offering their much-needed service to patients and their families.

The Midcounties Co-operative has pledged a fundraising target of £30,000, which will go towards training a care nurse for the hospice. 

About St Giles Hospice

St Giles Hospice offers specialist care for patients with cancer and other serious illnesses, as well as providing support for their families and helpers. Care is offered at the hospice’s centres in Sutton Coldfield, Walsall and Whittington, as well as in patients’ own homes across the region.

The total annual running costs of St Giles Walsall Hospice are £1.6 million, and the charity relies heavily on donations from the local community.

The Midcounties Co-operative has pledged to attempt to raise £33,000 to fund a nurse for one year.
