FUNDRAISING

This year, our chosen charity is Breast Cancer Now. In March, we held a quiz in clinic, which many of our patients completed and donated money to the charity. We raised £139.86 and the lucky winner of a free podiatry treatment was Mrs G Cassidy. During June, we will be doing another activity to raise money for this worthy cause – watch this space!
