THE Friends of Avisford Medical Group are continuing their fundraising campaign to support two surgeries at Middleton and Yapton.

The Friends took part 
in two fetes earlier this month to help raise money for the local surgeries.

As well as purchasing equipment, the Friends 
also contributed a sum towards a defibrillator 
that has now been installed at Shrubbs Field.

Geoff Blunden, trustee of the Friends of Avisford Medical Group, said: “We have not taken part in 
the fetes for two years, so 
we had to think up something a bit different.

“We came up with a 
half-size skeleton, which 
we thought would be in 
line with our surgery 

“The main reason we 
took part in these two 
well-attended events was 
to ‘get ourselves out there’, and allow the general 
public to give us some feedback.

“We had two games – ‘guess Mr Bones’ name’ 
was won by Olivia, who guessed ‘Christopher’, and the ‘name the bones’ competition was won by Emma Bembridge.”

“Our new banner was proudly displayed and we were very encouraged by the number of people who came over to say hello and take part in our two competitions.

“We would also like to thank all the local business that have done their bit to help us out.”
