More Movember

Posted by Robert Pilcher

Only 9 days to go. The facial hair is starting to irritate a bit, but the fact that we have now hit £300 makes it worth it.

We don't have a photo of Steve today - he has been in hiding in his surgery. He didn't even make it for afternoon coffee!

We do have one of my ugly mug to compare with last week

Well the Blog is back. It was removed from the website for a few months as it was just generating spam.

About a month ago, I mentioned in passing that I was considering doing Movember (It's all Chris Evans fault on Radio 2. He mentioned it on his morning show as I was driving in from Cambridge). This was latched upon by the girls at Bury and suddenly it was set in stone and Mr Little and I were signed up. None of the girls wanted to join us!

So now we are a week in and it is itching like, well, ltchiness itself. Especially under a mask. Mr Little has gone for moustache, but my wife insisted I went for full set after a few days of moustache only. I wish I hadn't listened, as my beard is coming through white. My wife thinks she is growing her own Santa.

 One week in we have raised over £100, so thank you all the patients who have donated. It is a bit like being an old fashioned exhibit at a travelling show - £1 entry to see the bearded man!

MacMillan Cancer Support

Posted by Robert Pilcher

I was today going to do the blog about acid erosion of teeth from acidic food and drinks, however, recently Denplan announced the total raised for MacMillan Cancer Support in 2012 - £26 888.55.  A great total raised by Dental Practices and their HQ Staff in Winchester.

Abbey Dental Practice had 9 members of staff take part in the Denplan Organised 18 mile walk in London during the summer.

 The chief organiser was one of our Dental Nurses - Abbie. The Practice is very proud of the effort put in by all the staff, and the fantastic generosity of all the patients who donated to bring our total to £2788.16 - more than 10% of the total of the amount raised by everyone else.

They will be preparing for the next event this summer very soon.
