Staff at a Rugby firm have appealed for help to raise funds for a charity close to their hearts.

They are getting involved in Myton Hospice’s Jailbreak challenge.

The challenge sees people taken to Warwick Myton Hospice and given 24 hours to get as far away as possible without spending a single penny,

Amy Sammon, a customer services advisor for Cemex, said: “We will be dressed in full prison attire - jumpsuits with arrows on etc - and unfortunately we aren’t having much luck getting people or companies to help us.

“Myton Hospice is a charity particularly close to a number of us and we all want to do as much as we can to help them.

“Cemex has a programme called Lend A Hand in which teams of people go and spend the day helping out in the community. So far, we have had two lots of Lend A Hand for Myton including making them a grotto for Santa at their Christmas fair and a team of us spent the day at the hospice wrapping hampers and sorting lottery donations. The volunteers and carers there who take care of the patients and their families work tirelessly for people who are suffering.”

On April 18 and 19, Sarah Harris, Ryan Aviles, Emma Barlow, Hannah Davis and Amy will be getting sponsored to get as far as they can.

“I’m hoping a local business or transport company will see our story and be willing to help us. We have to get as far away as possible, have a photo taken with a local paper for proof and then it’s our own doing to get us back.”
