Members of staff at a Budleigh medical centre have raised more than a thousand pounds taking on Race for Life in memory of their practice manager.

Budleigh Salterton Medical Centre’s practice manager, Trudy Carter, died in May, following a battle with cancer.

In tribute to her and to raise money for Cancer Research, 11 of her colleagues formed ‘Trude’s Brood’ and braved Race for Life, on July 22.

The team raised £1622.75, through donations from patients via a JustGiving page.

Staff at the medical practice have thanked all donors for their ‘kind contributions’, including their patients who collectively donated more than £500 of the total.

Trude’s Brood plan to take part in Race for Life every year from now on and said they were pleased to help the ‘good cause’ as well as honouring their ‘wonderful’ practice manager, Trudy.
