A BARNSTAPLE veterinary practice is to donate a day's consulting fees to charity. Argyll Veterinary Clinic at Brannam Crescent, Roundswell, is holding the fundraising day on Thursday June 12. Staff hope many patients (and owners) will make an appointment for that day to maximise the fundraising.Partner Jo Dyer said: "All our staff are taking part in the Race for Life again for the third year running, I am also cycling the Devon Coast to Coast on June 8 in aid of the North Devon Hospice. With so many sponsored events these days,we find it hard to keep approaching our long-suffering friends and families, so decided to do something else to raise our sponsorship money."We intend to make it a fun day as well, with refreshments, a book stall, and an opportunity to look round 'behind the scenes'."For a vet consultation on the day, phone (01271) 375356 to book; if you only want to look around and enjoy coffee and cake - just turn up.Money raised will go to the hospice and Cancer Reasearch.
