STAFF members at Dromore Doctors' Surgery are to lead by example by taking part in this year's Belfast City Marathon relay event.

In all five members of staff and one patient - rejoicing in the team name of 'Crocks, Docs and Frocks' - will be taking up the challenge on Monday, May 4.

By improving their own fitness they not only hope to encourage patients to be more active, but also to raise cash for the Doctors' Surgery Equipment Fund.

The relay event takes place in parallel to the main marathon event and the Dromore surgery team is already in training and looking forward to the big day. The team members are GPs Dr Ruth Gardine, Dr Roselle Ward and Dr. Colin Kenny, practice nurse Mrs. Mandy Russell and Dromore Athletic Club Coach Mr. Michael McGreevy.

The event is part of a year of fundraising for the surgery and anyone who wants to help sponsor the team will be welcome to do so at the surgery.
