Southern Counties Branch in conjunction with West Sussex LDC Charity Dinner
I am writing to invite you to join the West Sussex local dental committee for our first annual charity dinner which is taking place at the Hilton London Gatwick Airport Hotel on Saturday 12th October 2019 from 7.30pm
The charity that we are raising funds for is BurmaDent. This charity has two mobile dental units with two patient chairs per unit, which outreach to nursery schools, primary schools and other remote areas of Rangoon (Yangon) and Lake Inle in the shan province. It is staffed by volunteers that take planned excursions to Burma where disease levels are high and access to dental care is limited.
We are delighted to support their efforts and cause.
Dr Henrik Overgaard Nielsen is our Key note speaker and will be regaling us with stories of what it takes to be a Danish NHS dentist in Fulham and work with in the BDA throughout his career, one which culminates as Chairman of the GDPC.
The dress is Black Tie.
I would urge those who wish to bring their practice, to book a full table and arrange overnight accommodation as early as possible as we have only been allocated a limited number of rooms at the Hilton.
Bookings can be made via https://www.bda.org/southerncountiesdinner where the BDA events team will take you through the process. Individual tickets are priced at £70 but I would urge you to book a table of 10 to allow your dental team to enjoy the event with you.
In these stressful times this is an opportunity to party with your peers, network with other teams and share the successes and problems in our area over a drink in your best glad rags and in a lovely setting.
I look forward to welcoming you at the dinner and encouraging you to enjoy a formal but enjoyable evening of fun and frolics with your dental colleagues all in the good name of raising money for BurmaDent.
Toby Hancock Chairman, West Sussex LDC
