  • Charity & Business

    Last week I was privileged to attend a meeting of Henry Schein Dental’s Key Suppliers in Kent. Patrick Allen of Henry Schein and many members of his team have been good friends of Bridge2Aid for a number of years, and it has been fantastic to have their support since the beginning. I was very pleased […]

  • How You See It

    January marks the tenth anniversary of when I moved to Tanzania with my wife Jo to pick up our work with Bridge2Aid full time. I had been working on the Dental Training Programme for 18 months, shuttling back and forward from the UK to run programmes, and at the time, I thought I knew the […]

  • Throw your cap over the wall The New Year is upon us, and we’re all starting to feel the effect of the Christmas diet,  we’ve put away the decorations, and getting used to writing a ’6’ rather than a ‘5’ at the end of the date, something that usually takes me till February to master.  […]

  • Another year – and…?

    What will 2016 mean for you? I don’t know about you but everywhere I look on the internet and social media I’d bombarded with the ‘make 2016 your best year yet’ blogs. It’s a theme we can predict with certainty. And it’s one I look forward to because this time of year does present such […]

  • What is ‘good volunteering’?

    Here’s a quite a dense quote : ‘The assumption that we are the solution to another’s problem becomes a proposition of self-interest, whereby we feel we are able to tell people what their problems are, and then deal with them on our own terms.’ Dickson & Dickson. I got involved with Bridge2Aid to help dental […]

  • Jo’s return to Mwanza

    On the 30th June this year I had my final day working in our Mwanza office before me and the family moved back to the UK. It was an odd day as I knew I would be working with the team again and continuing to oversee all of our work in Tanzania, but knowing I […]

  • Ends of the Spectrum

    This past weekend I really enjoyed visiting two events held by our supporters – the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry annual conference in central London, and the Campbell Academy Masquerade Ball in Nottingham. BACD members have been supporters for a few years now, donating several thousand pounds and a lot of goodwill to help us. […]

  • Bridge2aid – Punching above our weight?

    One of my favourite parts of the month now I am loving and working in the UK is the visit to Wotton Under Edge in Gloucestershire where the UK office is. It’s a very different place to Mwanza where I spent the past 10 years but as you can see, it’s beautiful, and I really […]

  • Bridge of Change

    Last week I spent time in Birmingham at the NEC for the annual dental industry showcase. If you’ve never been, it is an exhausting three days where the internal environment of the show, the weird lighting, constant talking, and being on your feet for 14 hours a day all act in concert to leave even […]

  • Who do you think you are?

    One of my lasting memories of working in Tanzania is from the early days of establishing the Bridge2Aid emergency dental training programme. As was common in those days, I was often involved in driving along with Dr Samuel Kalongoji, the District Dental Officer in Magu to visit potential locations for training the local health workers.
