Marlborough Dental Teams Reach The Dizzy Heights For Charity
Dental teams from Marlborough’s two practices joined forces to reach the dizzy heights for charity. Dental workers climbed three of the UK’s highest peaks to raise money for a charity, which supports premature babies.
Trevor Goodall, founder of the charity, The New Life, headed a team of intrepid climbers, who scaled the heights of the three highest peaks in Great Britain. The peaks include: Mount Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis. The team completed the Three Peaks Challenge in 23 hours, 45 minutes and raised a total of £4,500, which will be used to buy new equipment for premature babies.
The New Life raises funds for specialist equipment for babies born prematurely and the money raised during this challenge will be donated to the baby unit at Great Western Hospital in Swindon.
The challenge team was made up of members of staff from Marlborough Dental Laboratory and Savernake Dental Practice.
Michelle Bridger, from Marlborough Dental Practice, said that the team was “delighted” with the sum of money they had raised and everyone was very grateful for the support and the generous contributions to support the cause, which makes a real difference to premature babies and their families.Join this Discussion
