Apples for Alzheimer's 

We are proud to announce that we have raised £265.80 for the Alzheimer’s Society over the last few weeks. This breaks our previous record last year. 
 
The Bramley apple tree at the back of the Cottingham surgery has produced a huge crop this year. Baskets and boxes of apples were left in the waiting room at our Beverley and Cottingham surgeries. 
 
A big thank you to everyone who took apples and donated to Alzheimer’s.
