The exhibition Skin Deep at the Surgeons' Hall Museums in Edinburgh runs from the 6th August 2010 to April 2011. It explores the effects of cosmetic changes and disfigurements to the face and looks at the historic attempts to reconstruct or alter the face to make people 'acceptable' in society. The influence of war and punishment, and the resulting injuries and innovations are also charted in this exhibition and this includes McIndoe's Guinea Pig Club. An attempt is made to discover the personal reasons behind surgery and what effect surgery can have on the psychology of the patient. The Saving Faces art exhibition is featured as an electronic presentation. The stories and images bring out the psychological impact on patients and represents the patients' view of facial surgery.

The sponsored family bike ride was a huge success. We certainly could not have asked for better weather. We would like to thank everyone involved with this event - the cyclists, those of you who were unable to join in, but generously sponsored your relatives, friends or Iain and his colleagues and last, but by no means least of course, all the helpers. You are all wonderful and we have raised lots of money which is still coming in. We will give you the final amount as soon as we have it.
Professor Hutchison completed his 50 miles. His online sponsorship page is still open to receive donations
