Brite Futures – Action for Children
Friday, July 15th, 2016
Action for Children charity – has been supporting the UK’s most vulnerable and neglected children for over 145 years. This charity helps children and young people by providing successful fundraising events, running children’s centres and helping young people into education, training and employment. This is only a fraction of the fantastic work they do.
Annually they host a Woman of Influence award ceremony and this year this was held at Glasgow’s Grand Central Hotel where over 300 guests attended. The Brite Dental team were fortunate enough to be part of this year’s illustrious event, where influential women in Scotland are recognised for their outstanding contribution to our society.
Over £62,000 was raised at this year’s event with Brite Dental being one of the headline sponsors. Moreover, Brite Dental donated money for a trip to take 100 children and 53 parents from Clackmannanshire family centre to Auchingarrich. The trip is a great experience for the children to share with their family and for many, it will be their summer holiday. The outing will include a fun-filled day at Auchingarrich Wildlife Centre where there are a number of activities to keep the children amused and entertained. These include mini golf, indoor and outdoor play parks, tractors circuit and animal feeding. This gives these inner- city children a chance to experience life in the countryside and learn more about animals.
Team members from each of our practices will benefit from this experience as they will also be attending. Brite Dental would like to thank everyone for their support and involvement in making this possible for this honourable cause. The generosity of this donation will give the children the opportunity to create fond memories they will cherish forever.
