RUNNING FOR THE GNS - A GREAT SUCCESS!!

                       

The Watling Medical Centre, in Burnt Oak, has raised £187l for The Good Neighbour Scheme by taking part in the Watford Bluebell 10km run. We're happy to report that the run went very well, despite the predictable damp Bank Holiday weather. The fund raising project has now closed but it is gratifying to report that the £1871 raised by the surgery exceeded its target of £1500. The GNS would like to thank the efforts of Dr Amit Shah and Mrs Sanja Todorovic, the Practice Manager (who is pictured above on the right) presenting the cheque to Cheryl Trott, the charity's co-ordinator, at our Thursday lunch club at the Annunciation Church.

  BARNET CIVIC AWARD

 

Great news for everyone involved with the charity. We won the award for our work in the community but as Derrick, our Head of Trustees, said the recognition was far more important than the winning. 

 WAITROSE GREEN DISC SCHEME

                          

It was our annual turn in March to be part of the Waitrose's fund raising scheme and Cheryl was recently presented with a cheque of £450 by the Waitrose branch at Mill Hill East.

SUPER VOLUNTEER

Barnet Council's 'Barnet Together' campaign asked us to nominate one of our volunteers who we felt had contributed greatly to our community. We were more than happy to put forward one of our stalwarts Martin Rosen. Martin has helped out in a number of different ways over the years. In fact, if he can help he will. He was even photographed as part of the campaign, as you can see, and is one of 6 volunteers featured on the Barnet website. Many thanks for all your hard work Martin!!

SUPPORTING OLDER PEOPLE IN MILL HILL AND BURNT OAK

The Good Neighbour Scheme for Mill Hill and Burnt Oak enables volunteers to provide neighbourly support to elderly and disabled people living in Mill Hill and Burnt Oak in the Borough of Barnet. 

Our services address the issues of fragility, loneliness, the moving away of children from the area and bereavement.
