The Yorkshire Marathon

Tanzania

Gwyneth spent two-and-a-half weeks in Tanzania on a volunteer programme run by the Bridge2Aid dental charity, giving clinical staff in the country’s remote Karagwe district a fast-track course in care, which can prevent people dying or being shunned. She was inspired to help after hearing a presentation from the charity at an awards ceremony.

The whole ethos of Bridge2Aid’s work is that it is sustainable, by showing local health workers with no previous dental training how to do emergency dentistry. They started with the basics, and the end result is they can go back into their communities and take teeth out.

Thorpe Dental Group Charity Bike Ride

This year as a team we have decided to get on our bikes (or someone elses!). We are going to do a 20 mile bike ride around our local communities on Saturday 3rd August stopping along the way to collect as many donations as possible for our chosen charity SCBU (Special Care Baby Unit) at York Hospital. We are hoping to finish the ride at the Quaker Wood Pub on Acomb Wood Drive so please come along to see us “cross the finish line” and to get your hands in your pockets to donate to this worthy cause.

If you would like to donate please visit our Just Giving Page with the following link:
