We were happy to welcome the children from Winmarleigh School who visited both Garstang Medical Practice and Kepple Lane Pharmacy in November.
Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a worldwide annual campaign taking place in October, involving thousands of organisations, to highlight the importance of breast awareness, education and research.
During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Breast Cancer Now aimed to get as many people as possible involved in raising awareness and funds to help support life-saving research and life-changing support.
As the UK's largest breast cancer research charity, along with their supporters, they aim to do this through campaigning, raising money and an array of events across the UK including 'Wear It Pink' on Breast Cancer Awareness Day - 18th October 2019.
On Breast Cancer Awareness Day the surgery staff wore pink to raise money and awareness and to support the 'Wear It Pink' campaign.
Jeans for Genes is the annual fundraising campaign for Genetic Disorders UK, the national charity that supports individuals and families affected by a genetic disorder.
Monies raised through Jeans for Genes fund the work of the charity and provide grants to organisations for projects that aim to transform the lives of children with genetic disorders.
During the week our surgery staff dressed in jeans (or something denim) to support this campaign and raised money towards the work of Genetic Disorders UK.
In order to raise awareness and show our support for those with Dementia, the surgery team had a 'Wear something purple for Dementia' day on Wednesday 22nd May 2019 in exchange for a donation to the Garstang Memory Café.
During the week members of our PPG (Patient Participation Group) had a 'Listening stand' in the main foyer with the aim of raising awareness and providing information and support for those with Dementia and their carers.
The donations raised by our staff were presented to Sandra Perkins, a member of our PPG and co-ordinator of the Garstang Memory Cafe. Sandra was absolutely thrilled by the gesture.
As part of the Countryfile Ramble for Children in Need, staff, friends and dogs of the Garstang Medical Centre enjoyed a Ramble on the 7th October 2018 covering 12km. We are very pleased to have raised £680. A massive thank you to everyone who donated.
