Now that Christmas is near it is time to thank our sponsors.

A big thank you to Russell McVeigh in Wellington for taking on our charity application as a pro bono project.

They were very patient as we went through the process of becoming an incorporated society at the end of last year. After that it was reasonably smooth sailing to become a charitable trust with the Charities Services in March.

They were even there for advice when we struggled for months to get a bank account during the Covid lockdown aftermath.

We became familiar with the anti-money laundering law which meant we had to identify ourselves over and over. Patience was a virtue.

Thank you too to Oral 7 who have provided us with discounted products and free samples in the past and gave us a start up donation. I can vouch for the Oral 7 gel and mouthwash for my own special post treatment dry mouth care.

Finally, a big thank you to one of our members who has believed in us and given us some generous donations. We want our charity to be worthy of his help.

And for anyone else, we have a Givealittle button on our home page!
