RACE TO THE PYRAMIDS

We have extremely big hearted GPs, though a little wacky!!!  Three of them have very kindly decided to raise money for Eastwood Memory Cafe with a totally amazing challenge.  I would be really grateful if you could share this with anyone and everyone you know, so we can hopefully reach the target set. 

 

Please see the following link:

In order to support the amazing work of Eastwood Memory Cafe; we have set ourselves the challenge of collectively running the equivalent distance of Eastwood to The Pyramids of Giza, 2200 miles, by the end of 2018 and would love to raise the same number in £s - £2200!!!

Please support this fabulous charity which makes such a difference to those affected by dementia in our local area.

Feel free to keep nagging us to get those running miles in. We will give monthly updates with progress toward our target!
