Dentistry magazine and Dentistry\.co\.uk joined in the excitement of a massive fundraising national relay recently and raised money for a good cause.
The relay – organised by Practice Plan – is aiming to get as many dental practices as possible to transport a handcrafted baton around the UK to raise much-needed funds for Bridge2Aid.
Ad executive Dan Cockerton (dressed as Spiderman) and digital commercial manager Charles Southey (Superman) raced the baton to the Hilton Hotel in Stansted where it was received by Practice Plan’s marketing manager, Julie Modena, at one of their practice seminars.
Once it has completed its UK tour, the baton – decorated by the children at the Bukumbi Care Centre in Tanzania – will be flown back to Tanzania where Practice Plan managing director Steve Turnock and his team will complete the final 21 miles.
By then, the baton will have travelled more than 10,000 miles.
The project is aiming to raise around £30,000, which will go to dental charity Bridge2Aid.
