This summer a team from Hillview Medical Centre completed the 'Surrey 3 Peaks Challenge'. This demanding 24 mile hike incorporated ascents of Box Hill, Holmbury Hill and Leith Hill.
They hope to raise over £5,000 to buy much needed medical equipment that the NHS can't fund.
The Hillview Medical Centre South Downs Way Cycle Challenge 2017.
"Staff at Hillview Medical Centre have completed their most difficult challenge yet.
Their 'Cycle Team' had originally hoped to cycle the entire 100 miles of the South Downs Way as a relay in under 14 hours.
Starting at Winchester at 6am on August 12th they climbed over 3,800 metres of hills and, despite several setbacks, the final leg reached Beachy Head at 8.45pm. The challenge took 14 hours and 45 minutes.
Several unforeseen problems slowed them down including 'getting lost', 'falling off', 'suffering from dehydration' and 'being chased by angry cows' "
The Nuts Challenge.
Our second charity challenge of 2017 was the Nuts Challenge. Trustee Gennie Dearman completed the '100 extreme obstacle' military style assault course on September 2nd.
Thank you to the many who have already sponsored either Gennie or the Hillview Cycle team.

Background to the charity
Following the many requests from patients to give donations for medical equipment to aid patient care and services, the Hillview Surgery Charitable Trust was set up, charity number 1056914. The Hillview Surgery Charitable Trust helps to provide facilities and services for patients at Hillview Medical Centre in Woking. The charity has supported the 14,000 patients of Hillview Surgery by refurbishing the building and providing equipment that both reduces the need to travel to a hospital for tests and treatment, and overall patient waiting times. Over the last five years the financial support given by the charity equates to £25 per patient.
The charity is overseen by the trustees; Dee Wilkinson, Andrew Freeman and Dr Peter Smith. The Charity is separate to the practice and the trustees ensure that funds are used to provide additional services, equipment and experience that the NHS cannot provide.
For many years until his recent death - Keith Smith was also an invaluable trustee for the charity. Keith put lots of his time into supporting the charity and was always a positive and enthusiastic participant. We would like to express our condolences to Keith's family. We will all miss him.
