Ramsgate: East Cliff GP Practice team complete Macmillan fundraising challenge

By Katie Davis

Gruelling heat and challenging terrain did not stop a team from a Ramgsate GP surgery completing the Macmillan south coast mighty hike.

The group from East Cliff GP Practice, in Dumpton Park Drive, celebrated as they crossed the finish line in Eastbourne on Sunday.

Their efforts have also been reflected in their fundraising total, which has smashed its target by reaching £4,450.

Zoe Borie, community nurse, said: "The heat was intense and the hills, especially Seven Sisters was hideous.

"When we crossed the finish line the emotions took over and when we heard the event had raised more than £800,000 we felt extremely proud to be part of it.
"I have seen the support Macmillan offers our patients and their loved ones.

"This support helps to make the journey of someone living with cancer and loving someone with cancer a little easier."

The 26-mile hike started in Brighton and following the South Downs Way before ending in Eastbourne.

Team member Samantha Austen, practice nurse, said: "Cancer affects people of all ages and in many ways and does not come with a manual.

"This is where Macmillan comes in, it is your manual, it's your friend and it's your lifeline."
