Darmouth Caring thanks Harbour Dental for fundraising efforts
Harbour Dental in Dartmouth have been generous with their efforts to raise funds for Dartmouth Caring – who wanted to say thank you publicly.
Dartmouth Caring chairman Dee Nutt and coordinator and administrator Alison Stocks popped over to the Harbour Dental premises in Market Street to say thanks to owner Eugene Bojé and his staff Sue O’Reilly and Lucy Pillar. All three gave up their time on a Saturday to offer special treatments for customers, with all the money taken going to Dartmouth Caring. The day brought in £400.
Dee was effusive in her praise of the generosity from Eugene and his wife Alexia – and the fact Sue and Lucy gave up their time for free too.
“We are so grateful to these guys for their donation,” said Dee. “Every single donation we receive is wonderful, and to see a local business supporting us in this way is just brilliant. I hope that more businesses in Dartmouth will think about supporting charities through days such as this.
“We are almost completely supported through fundraising, so every penny you give helps us to help people in this community, every single day.”
Eugene said: “We plan to do three of these charity days a year and would love it if more local businesses join us to support local charities by donating their time and a percentage of their gross for that one day. Who knows, we might start a trend. I do want to say a huge thank you to my team, Sue O’Reilly and Lucy Pillar. They have both given up their time on Saturday without getting paid, they are both irreplaceable.”
