Support The Good Neighbour Scheme
Watling medical centre, as a local GP practice, would like to raise awareness of the issues our elderly patients' can face, in particular, social isolation and loneliness that has a huge impact on their health and wellbeing. Thus we would like to support and fundraise for our local Good neighbour scheme charity for the amazing work they do as volunteers.
To help fundraise for this crucial local charity:
1. Several GPs (Dr Khanbhai, Dr Moore and Dr Shah) and our practice nurse (Andrea Callis) are running the Watford Bluebell 10k run on Monday 1st May 2017
2. Nine children of the GP practice staff from age 2 and above, are running either the 3K or the 1K childrens race that is scheduled simultaneously on Monday 1st May in Watford.
3. Several GPs (Dr Saldanha, Dr Santhouse), admin and reception staff (Lynn, Razia, Sarah) and our practice manager (Ms Todorovic) will be doing a bespoke 10k fast walk on the same day.
4. Various other practice staff will be getting active in their own way or providing much needed support to their colleagues on the 1st of May
All funds collected will go entirely to our chosen charity. We hope you will support us in donating whatever you can, however small, and help make a significant difference to our local elderly population.
