A DONATION of £2,800 has been handed to the Myton Hospices — and it is enough to pay for more than 100 hours of nursing.

The money has come from Warwickshire law firm Blythe Liggins which first nominated Myton Hospices as its charity in 2012 to mark the hospice’s 30th anniversary, and has continued its support ever since.

This latest sum was largely raised through Myton’s Make a Will Week campaign where Blythe Liggins waived the fee for those making a will and asked for a donation to the hospice instead.

Hannah Morris, corporate fundraising manager at the Myton Hospices, said: “Blythe Liggins have been staunch supporters over the last four years and we are very grateful for their donations and pleased to hear that they have again named us their charity for this year.” B

lythe Liggins joint senior partner, Richard Thornton, added: “We are delighted to be supporting the hospice again, they do a fantastic job in providing free-of-charge care for thousands of patients and their families.”

Jessica McDonnell, a paralegal at Blythe Liggins, is to continue the firm’s fundraising by running the London Marathon in aid of Whizz Kids, which provides wheelchairs and other mobility equipment for disabled children.
