Glendair Dental: Giving Back
Community programme: when you wish upon a star
We are thrilled that with our patient’s help, we can continue help to transform lives. Our next chosen charity is When You Wish Upon a Star.
When You Wish Upon a Star has a simple mission, to grant the Wishes of children living with life threatening illnesses.
Please have a look at their page to see the incredible things they do – from Harry Potter themed trips on-board the Northern Belle train to meeting Father Christmas in Lapland. Any donations will help to grant a Wish of a very brave and courageous child. If you would like to get involved, please visit: https://www.whenyouwishuponastar.org.uk/donate
Here’s a letter we received from the Regional Fundraiser, Alexa Wigfield:
“Thank you so much for your fantastic donation of £283 which we recently received from the Giving Back to the Community programme.
Every donation we receive brings a seriously ill child’s Wish closer to being granted. Please find a certificate of our appreciation. Many thanks for your support and we would be delighted to assist you with any fundraising in the future.”
Donation for Gears of Goodwill
The Glendair team are happy to support the brilliant Gears of Goodwill charity, donating toothpaste, blankets, duvets and throws for the homeless.
This group was purposefully set up in Derby. Their amazing volunteers go out into the city streets and meet homelessness head on and help people get their lives back.
Red Nose Day on 15th March
Today we have been supporting #RedNoseDay for #ComicRelief! The Glendair team dressed up in their pyjamas to raise money for vulnerable people and communities in the UK and internationally. Thank you to all of our lovely patients for your generous donations!
The Beacon Project
Here at Glendair, we believe that every business has the power to help change lives by giving back to society. We are thrilled that with our patient’s help, we can play an important part in making that happen through our three chosen charities, with one being The Beacon Project.
The Beacon is a day centre is located in Mansfield where they provide hot meals, showering facilities, clean clothes, emotional support and more! This inspirational organisation is run by volunteers and is reliant on donations and gifts of food. Please take a look at their page to see what wonderful work they do!
This is the letter that we sent out:
Here Is A Lovely Letter That We Received from the Beacon:
“Dear team at Glendair Dental Practice,
On behalf of ‘The Beacon Project’, I would like to thank you for your very generous donation of £283.00 that was raised from your ‘Giving back to the Community programme’.
The money will enable us to buy much needed supplies for people who are homeless and vulnerable in Mansfield. Thank you so much for choosing to support our charity, without the help and support from the local community our project would struggle to continue.
Louisa Hillman (Centre Manager)”
Here are some photos of the Beacon to show what our donation will be used for:
team building treasure hunt challenge
At our latest monthly meeting, we were tasked with a team building treasure hunt challenge around Alfreton, with the aim of getting to know the new Glendair members, whilst also getting the local community involved!
The winners were the Incredibles Team! Take a look at the photos below!
Morocco with the Dental Mavericks!
Our hygiene therapist Holly recently travelled all the way to Morocco with the Dental Mavericks!
She helped to provide care to children suffering with dental pain, living with no other access to dental care or education.
Here at Glendair, we always strive to give back to the community and we are very proud of Holly for getting involved with this incredible cause.
Here’s some photos from her trip!
