On Sunday 19th May, a team from the Medical Centre took part in the 'Race for Life' at Waddesdon Manor.
Ellen Solley (Practice Manager), Sarah and Freya Howcutt walked briskly around the beautiful grounds of the Manor in order to raise money for Cancer Research UK. Dr. West was there too but she gathered a group of running mothers to race on ahead.
Approximately 2000 women were there on the day running, jogging, dancing and walking to support the charity's research into all kinds of cancer.
The team would like to thank everyone who sponsored them. They estimate that they have already raised approximately £300; however money is still coming in. Special thanks go to 11-year old Freya who raised £83 on her own.
Unfortunately Practice Nurse Jo Green could not attend due to injury however her sponsors are still donating.
Everyone had such a lovely morning for this worthwhile cause that Ellen would like to repeat the experience next year. Staff and patients will be welcome to join in.
