Spooky fundraiser at dental practice

A dental surgeon and his team gave patients an extra fright for Halloween – all in the name of charity.

Dr Peter Saund’s team at Boyatt Wood Dental Centre in Eastleigh, Hampshire, held the second of their annual charity event days for Cancer Research UK (CRUK).

And if going to the dentist was already a scary prospect for many, this team made sure patients were in for an extra fright this Halloween.

The spooky goings-on saw Count Dracula and his team of mummies, witches, fairies and Catwoman pacing up and down the corridors.

And the bewitching dental team ensured a trick and treat for their patients as they donned their scariest outfits to end a month of fundraising for Cancer Research UK.

Dr Saund, who lost his wife Veena to ovarian cancer in September 2007 at the age of 43, said that this was the second year of their campaign raising more than £1,400.

Last year, the theme was Christmas and they raised £906. They have already started planning next years campaign, Hawaiian fancy dress, in the summer.

‘It would be great if we could raise £2,000 next year,’ said Peter.
