IDP Sponsors Brave Inverurie Boy

11188209_476265219192050_7226069656242630333_n 11209624_476265222525383_1065461845366661557_n
11193311_476265209192051_6034561664037701170_nWe wanted to introduce you to a very brave young Inverurie Man who we think is doing something very special.

Please meet Sam Grant… Sam’s Mum and Dad are patients at Inverurie Dental Practice and approached us with Sam’s story asking if we’d like to sponsor him in his endeavours to raise money for Cleft Lip and Palate Charity ‘ Operation Smile’. We were delighted to offer our help and thought that some of our Facebook followers might want to help Sam reach his fund raising target of £2000.

Here’s Sam’s Story….

Sam was born with a cleft lip and palate and so far he has had 10 operations to repair this birth defect. He is due to have another op later this year, the most intensive one yet, where they will take a piece of bone from his hip and use this to fill the gap in his gum. This will be followed by a lot of dentist work to straighten and even add teeth to make it easier for him to eat, speak and to have his teeth look better. Sam has been an incredibly brave boy through his operations to date, but had been refusing to get this latest one.
Sam’s Mum and Dad therefore had an idea to show him pictures of other children who have not had the benefits of the NHS but have a similar condition to Sam. The website Sam’s parents showed him was from the charity ‘Operation Smile’.

In showing Sam these pictures and telling the stories of children from around the world something wonderful happened. Sam was so moved by what the charity does that he said he wanted to help and has also come around to the need for his own operation!
Sam would like to raise £2,000 which would sponsor an operating table for a complete Operation Smile mission somewhere in the world giving new smiles to around 25 children. To help raise the money, we have starting organising a football fun day to be held on the 30th May in Inverurie.

Sam would like to thank you in advance for any donation you make as he is so keen to help out some other boys and girls who do not have the same opportunity for the operations as he has.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So if you would be so kind as to donate a few of your hard earned pennies to this brave boys cause please visit his just giving page on the link below.. We will also have a small collection box at reception if any one wishes to donate in person…

Well done Sam and we hope you smash your fund raising target!!!
