BDA bids to raise £20K for charity
The British Dental Association (BDA) is encouraging the dental family to bid generously in an auction it is organising to raise money for two leading dental charities.
The auction, which will be taking place at the 2013 British Dental Conference and Exhibition, is aiming to raise £20,000 to be split evenly between the BDA Benevolent Fund and the Bridge2Aid charities.
An array of prizes, including a Champagne City experience trip to France, a break at Raymond Blanc’s Cookery School at Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, dental equipment including an intra-oral camera and an operating light and sufficient places at dental courses to obtain a full quota of CPD for a year, will be on offer.
The auction will be held as part of the Exhibition Hall drinks reception at 6pm on Thursday 25 April at the 2013 British Dental Conference and Exhibition at ExCeL London. It will be hosted in the Demonstration theatre area.
Dr Martin Fallowfield, the chair of the BDA’s Principal Executive Committee, said: ‘Dental professionals are, by their nature, caring people who are used to putting others first. I hope many colleagues will join us for this auction and help us raise money for two excellent charities that are close to the heart of the dental family.
‘I’d also like to like to place on record my thanks to the organisations who have donated some outstanding prizes for the auction.’
