ENTRUST staff spent the day at Warwick Myton Hospice, the Company’s adopted charity of the year, on 11 June improving the grounds around the Hospice for use by patients and their families. This included weeding and laying chipped bark and slate to improve the look of the grounds as well as to reduce the risk of weeds re-growing in the spaces.
Staff also painted a number of areas within the grounds including arbours, handrails and fences and then supported the Myton team prepare for their volunteers barbeque that evening.
The Myton Hospices provide high quality, specialist care to people whose conditions no longer respond to curative treatment. They aim to meet people’s physical, psychological, spiritual and social needs and support both patients and their families. Myton Hospice is also committed to training, supporting and encouraging other care providers to practise good palliative care.
Chris Welford, ENTRUST Chief Executive said: “We are pleased to have been able to offer some practical support to Myton through the provision of resources and materials to improve the grounds around the hospice. The work the hospice does within the local area is incredibly important and this is the first of many activities we plan to support Myton on throughout the next year.”
Rosie Houghton, Corporate Fundraiser at The Myton Hospices added: “It has been a fantastic day here at Myton! The team from ENTRUST, our Charity of the Year Partner, have been so generous by providing both their time and funds to improve the gardens here at Warwick Myton Hospice. I will look forward to working with them throughout the course of our partnership!”
