Dancing dentists raise vital funds for BDA Benevolent Fund

Eighty dentists and their partners took to the dance floor and raised £2,485 for the BDA Benevolent Fund to help their colleagues who have fallen on financial hardship.

As part of the Fund’s Be Active Campaign, a dinner dance was held at the Cardiff Village Hotel in April. It was organised by Dr Ann Rockey, Chairman of the Fund, and Dr Pam Norman, South Wales Trustee for the Board of Trustees of the Fund. Dr Ann Rockey says,

Pam and I wanted to undertake an event for the Be Active Campaign in South Wales that would bring the branch together, as well as fundraise. Our colleague Andrew Matthews royally entertained us with an array of songs from the 40s and 50s. We had a very successful and enjoyable evening at the dinner dance. We are very grateful to all the companies and individuals that kindly sponsored the event.

The Fund brings hope to dentists who are struggling financially by providing one-off or regular loans and grants. The registered charity relies on donations to carry on with the vital work it does and relies on the Profession’s help.
