Brannam Medical Centre makes donation to Age concern Barnstaple.

BRANNAM Medical Centre has presented £500 to Age Concern Barnstaple to support its Home from Hospital service.

The money was raised by staff after the practice selected its local Age Concern branch as its chosen charity for 2011.

The money was raised through a series of events including book and plant sales, cake and non uniform days.

Staff felt the Age Concern Home from Hospital service, which supports people aged 60 and over who are being discharged from hospital or residential rehabilitation, would benefit stroke patients and elderly residents.

For 2012 the practice is supporting North Devon Women’s Aid, which provides temporary refuge, support and after care to women and children who have suffered domestic abuse.
