On Saturday 30th June some of the team will be raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support. Dr Karen Jones and Practice Manager Emma will be joined by Nurse Team Leader Pippa and Rebecca from Binscombe Pharmacy and will be hiking almost 23 miles along the Jurassic Coast. A sponsorship form is available at reception if you would like to offer your support to "The Binscombe Buddies" You can also donate to this worthy cause via our Just Giving Page at www.justgiving.com/fundrai
