Charity of the Year 

As part of our commitment to our Core Value of Responsibility and also to our local community, Frome Medical Practice has decided to choose a Charity of the Year.

Each year the Charity will be chosen by the whole team, through a two stage voting process:

  • All staff are invited to nominate their favourite local charity.
  • The three charities with the most nominations are then put forward to the whole team to vote on.

The same Charity won't be chosen for two consecutive years.

 

2021 Charity of the Year

It has been decided that We Hear You (WHY) will continue to be our Charity of the Year through to 2022, given that many of our plans for fundraising were curtailed by the coronavirus pandemic. 

WHY celebrated their 25th anniversary of working in Frome in 2019. The charity provides emotional support to patients, families, friends and carers who have been affected by cancer or any other life threatening condition.

You find out more about the support We Hear You offers here.

And if you are interested in supporting the charity yourself there are many ways to do this, including volunteering, donating, fundraising and regular giving. You can find out about all of this under the ‘Get Involved’ section of their website.  

We will update this page with news of our fundriasing for WHY as it happens.
