Hospice gears up for Donation Drive Thru

Rugby Editorial 7th Jul, 2022   0

THE MYTON Hospices have released new dates for their 2022 ‘Donation Drive Thrus’, including one in Rugby.

The Drive Thru events are an easy way to donate unwanted items to charity by simply driving up, unloading the items and driving off again.

Volunteers will be on hand to help with heavier donations, and all the proceeds from the sale of the items will go to the Myton Hospices.

Previous Donation Drive Thru events have seen hundreds of supporters fill up their cars with donations and hand them over at the donation stations at Myton’s three hospices in Warwick, Coventry and Rugby.

Donation Drive Thrus are taking place at Warwick Myton Hospice on Wednesday July 13 from 11am to 1pm, Wednesday August 3 from 11am to 1pm and Saturday September 17 from 10am to 1pm.

There will be a further Drive Thru at Coventry Myton Hospice on Saturday August 20 from 10am to 1pm, and another at Rugby Myton Support Hub on Saturday September 3 from 10am to 1pm.

All donations must be good quality, saleable items such as clothes, shoes, accessories, unused toiletries, furniture and electrical items. Myton cannot accept items that are damaged, broken or incomplete in any way and there are some items they cannot sell and in fact cost money to pay for their disposal. This includes upholstered items that do not carry the appropriate fire safety label.

Myton’s Head of Retail and Trading, Ralph Beevers, said: “We were blown away by the amazing support, the number of people who came along to donate and the amazing goods they donated, which provide such an important source of income for our shops. Thank you so much to everyone who has already donated – we hope to enjoy similar success at our forthcoming drive-thru events”.

The Myton Hospices charity needs to raise £9.1million this year to care for people with terminal illnesses at its sites in Rugby, Warwick and Coventry. Visit www.mytonhospice.org/how-you-can-support-us-2 to support the charity.
