Dental surgery in Gravesend selling sweets and lemonade for charity day

By Chris Hunter

Sweets, lemonade and Pimms will be on offer at a Gravesend dental surgery as part of a charity fund-raising day.

Bespoke Dental in Lower Higham Road will be selling the treats - not normally associated with dental care - for the one-off occasion as they raise money for Smile Train, on Saturday July 6.

There will also be music, games, and a raffle with lots of exciting prizes up for grabs, including a professional massage, complimentary hygiene clean and cinema tickets.

The team at Bespoke Dental: Natalie Knight, Anika Mascarenhas, Colin Orsbourn & Amanda Richardson (13409878)

All money raised from the day will go towards Smile Train - an international children’s charity which empowers medical professionals with the training, funding, and resources needed to provide free cleft lip or palate surgery and comprehensive cleft care to children in their own communities - giving them a brand new, "forever smile".

A statement from the Bespoke Dental team said: “We came across Smile Train whilst looking online for a charity to raise money for and it instantly made sense. We had a connection to it because of our profession and the inspiration to help these children in developing countries with something as important as communicating and eating, most importantly being able to smile (which is universal) confidently.”

Bespoke Dental are aiming to raise £450 for Smile Train during their day of fundraising and via their Virgin Money giving page – helping to give more children their new forever smile, and the chance to live a healthy and fulfilling life.
