Fundraising isn’t just about running!

Posted in: News, by sheanna, on 3rd May 2015 | Comments Off on Fundraising isn’t just about running!

Every year, hundreds of people do amazing things to raise money for Bridge2Aid.

Running through mud and over obstacles is great for some, but doesn’t suit everyone.

Hannah Sutlow in Gloucestershire has been making tooth fairy bags for us for just over a year now. She says…

“As a dentist, Bridge2Aid is a charity which is naturally close to my heart. I first heard about the wonderful work they do when I was at dental school, and I was part of a group who took part in an It’s A Knockout fundraising event. When I graduated in 2013 and started foundation training my interest in Bridge2Aid grew thanks to the enthusiasm of my adviser and various speakers, who had been lucky enough to go out to East Africa and shared their experiences with us.

The stark statistic that three quarters of the world’s population has no safe emergency dental care pushed me into action, and I started thinking of ways in which to fundraise. I enjoy various crafts in my spare time, so decided to put my skills to good use and made a few little tooth fairy bags, hoping to raise maybe £50 by selling them at work and to family and friends. Almost a year and over £700 later the tooth fairy bags are still popular and have enabled me to share Bridge2Aid’s work with my patients and colleagues.

My next goal is to go on a Dental Volunteer Programme to help train a health worker in East Africa and see first hand the difference that my fundraising is making to people’s lives.”
