The team from Toowoomba Orthodontists have embraced the true spirit of Christmas this year; giving. In lieu of corporate gifting to the local dental community this time of year, they decided no one deserves more Christmas cheer than our struggling farmers.
Rather than gifting hampers to their referring dentists filled with the usual festive goodies & spoils, Toowoomba Orthodontists will generously donate to a cause that is close to all our hearts – helping our drought stricken Farmers. A giant $10,000 cheque was presented to the Drought Angels on Friday 29th November on behalf of the dental community, 301 Margaret Street. Dr Chris Turnock from Toowoomba Orthodontists said that so many of our patients have been doing it tough on the land, our hearts go out to all those who have lost so much. “If we can help put one smile on a Farmers face, than we feel that we have given something back. I cannot speak highly enough of all the amazing volunteers at the Drought Angels. They work tirelessly to assist not just the Farmers, but the local businesses and communities in which they live. A donation to such a worthy charity really is the Christmas gift that gives back.”
Drought Angels representative and volunteer, Anita Armanasco from Fitzy’s recieved the giant cheque on behalf of the non-for-profit registered charity. Fitzy’s will hold a sold out luncheon event “Feast For a Farmer” on Thurs 5th Dec to raise funds for Drought Angels. The local community in Toowoomba are standing strongly with our Farmers through this devastating drought. Dr Ashley Smith from Toowoomba Orthodontists urges anyone that can give a little or a lot to please dig deep this Christmas. “Our Farmers need you. Drought Angels are a charity that are actually doing something in our great Darling Downs region and are making a difference to every farming family they assist”.
