No, that’s not a furry animal on Simon’s top lip, it’s his attempt at Movember

If you’ve been to see us in the last few weeks you may have noticed that our owner and head dentist Simon has been growing a rather gentlemanly moustache. Don’t worry though, he’s not trying out a new look, he’s raising money for a great cause.

Movember is a nationally recognised event whereby men (who can) grow moustaches throughout November to raise awareness for male cancers as well as physical and mental health conditions.

Thanks to the popularity of the Movember foundation – there have been impressive, creative and downright terrifying results over the years – the charity (which was first established in 2003) has gone on to raise over £402 million which has been spent helping men live healthier, happier and most importantly, longer lives.

With just under one week left, Simon has raised nearly £200 from generous donations by our patients, family and friends. We’re all really proud of him and would like to wish him luck with his last week of growth. We then hope he has a good shave and never attempts this again. Well, until next year!

If you would like to donate to Simon’s Movember collection pot, please speak with a member of our friendly team, or visit his donation page at http://mobro.co/12800265.

Join in the festive fun with 2015’s Christmas Jumper Day!

Christmas jumpers. Love them or hate them, there’s no doubt that they’ve become an almost integral part of Christmas celebrations over the past few years. So much so, in fact, that there’s now an annual Christmas Jumper Day, where people all over the UK donate money to don their festive sweaters at work, school or just around the house.

The money raised from all the donations collected is distributed between Macmillan Cancer Support, Make A Wish UK and Save The Children, who all help families and children facing difficult times, and difficult Christmases.

This year Text Santa are also supporting the campaign, and the presenters of their annual fundraising night will be wearing their Christmas knits too!

Christmas Jumper Day 2015 will be taking place on Friday 18th December, and here at Cox’s Dental Health Care we can’t wait to join in the fun. Why not get involved too? Get your winterwear at the ready, especially if you happen to have an appointment booked with us on the 18th – we’d love to see your seasonal efforts and you can check ours out too!

For more information about Christmas Jumper Day, and to see how your donations benefit thousands of children and families around the UK, head to www.jumpers.savethechildren.org.uk.
