Charity Challenges

Hull Marathon 2019

Part 2 of our Charity Challenges for 2019 involved 7 members of the practice taking part in the Hull Marathon.

Minnie Lyons-Coleman, Emma Clayton, Tim Quarmby, Rebecca Quarmby, Kerry Robinson and Carol Kennedy all ran relay legs varying between 5 and 8 miles in length.

Karen Baker however stepped it up by taking on the entire 26.2 mile challenge – with a fantastic finishing time of 4hrs 15mins in very hot conditions we are all extremely proud of her!

Well done to everyone who took on the challenge and helped to raise money for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance. As of the end of the Marathon we have raised an amazing £3000 for the charity. Thank you so much to all our wonderful patients and friends for helping us reach this wonderful total.

Wolds 20 Hike : May 2019

Big hike done! On a truly wet and miserable day 12 of us set out to conquer the Wolds around Millington. Armed with compasses, O/S maps, checkpoint co-ordinates and a lot of waterproof clothing we headed off from Millington Village Hall with the hope of making it back before dark! Splitting into 2 teams we trekked up hill and down dale, one team tackling 13 miles and the other a 20 mile course. Nature did it’s best to stop us in our tracks, be it hail-storms, howling winds, an Alsation on the loose or herds of cows blocking our paths. It also provided a stunning backdrop for us as the miles went by. Beautiful scenery such as Millington Pastures, Thixendale, Givendale and Kirby Underdale were all on route. A sterling effort by all meant we all managed to return to base before the 8 hour deadline, some of us with just 10 minutes to spare!  Sadly both the village cafe and pub were shut by the time we finished, the celebratory drink would have to wait!

Thank you to all those of you who have sponsored us on our various practice challenges. It really does make a difference to the lives of some of those in need. If you would like to sponsor us then you can do so by clicking this link or via the sponsor forms at the practice.
