You may recall, that at the launch of our new brand, the Sutton Dental & Implant Clinic, we made a commitment to pledge 1% of the total sales taken at the Practice to local charities to help those in our local area. This is why we have started the Sutton Dental Charity.
Breast Friends is a local charity that helps support patients undergoing cancer treatment. We selected this charity for many reasons.
Like many conditions, cancer patients have suffered greatly during the pandemic without being able to access the medical care and support available to them previously.
This has often resulted in late diagnosis and a poorer overall prognosis.
This charity has also helped to support the mother of one of our team members, Miss Amy Flowers, and therefore it felt natural for us to want to support this charity with it being so close to home.
Again, individuals mental health has been greatly affected during the pandemic, the true effects of which are yet to be fully realised.
The Mental Health Foundation has centres across the UK setup to help individuals suffering with a wide range of mental health issues, and again we felt this would be a fantastic cause to support.
We hope this is something that also makes you feel very proud as you have helped us make these contributions.
As we have mentioned, this is something we will be doing on a quarter-by-quarter basis and as its linked to the money taken by the Practice, we hope these donations will grow as the Practice continues to grow.
The next donation will be made in January and we will of course keep you updated on which charity is selected. We would like to welcome any suggestions anyone may have on which charities we should support in the future, within our local community.
