Merry Christmas from everyone at Belmont Dental Practice. Have a warm and cosy festive season. Meanwhile the team at Belmont is taking part in the fancy dress Boxing Day dip in the sea at Seaburn in helping to raise money for our charity ‘The Shining Star Project’. Brrrr! If you are looking for something a bit different to do this boxing day, come down to Seaburn harbour and laugh at us and all the people who have decided to go swimming in the sea. We will be the ones dressed as African Ladies!! Of course it is all in the aid of charity and we are hoping to raise money for our practice charity ‘The Shining Star Project’, that is run by our receptionist Julie. The project is aimed at building a first stop contact clinic for a remote village in the Gambia. The village currently has no medical facilities at all. The aim is to provide malaria treatment, emergency treatment to stabilise a patient until hospitalisation and a clean clinical environment for maternity patients. If you are interested in finding out more about the project, or if you have any other ideas for fund raising, please speak to Julie at reception.
