Sparkle for Axl
Arden Clinic recently made a charitable donation to the Sparkle for Axl appeal. This is an appeal in association with Bradford Hospitals’ Charity that provides good quality toys and play equipment for children who are undergoing treatment. The appeal is named after a little boy called Axl who had a rare blood anemia disorder. He spent most of his young life in hospital undergoing treatments and sadly died 3 days before his 3rd birthday. The charity came up with an annual Sparkl for Axl day (10th December) where people are encouraged to wear something sparkly and make a donation.
The Bradford Hospitals’ Charity employs play specialists that identify the toys and play equipment that makes a real difference to patients. This enables the kids to have fun and takes their focus away from the very difficult situations they have to face, so that life is not so painful and they can enjoy themselves. They can still be children and still have fun and feel like they are having a life, even though a lot of their lives will be in hospital.

Our current project is supporting an amazing medical and dental relief charitable organisation called Healthpoint Foundation.
They currently covering 15 refugee camps with outreach clinics serving up to a HUGE 20,000 refugees!
Urgent dental care is in great demand amongst various camps across Thessaloniki, Greece. Resources are limited but people are desperately in need. Doctors and dentists are flying in from all over the world to provide their expertise during this crisis. They do not receive any form of renumeration as 100% of donations are used to purchase medical/dental supplies and equipment. So any little support is appreciated!
Arden clinic is committed to sharing the same values, raise awareness and invest in a worthwhile and progressive charitable organisation that can help change lives of those in need.
There are different ways in which we are supporting this particular project.
- As a team, we will be visiting a number of refugee sites during 2016
- Holding fundraising days where a percentage of profits from Arden Clinic treatments will be donated to the charity.
- Assistance with recruiting doctors and dentists from the UK to travel to Greece and perform required treatments on refugees on a voluntary basis with Healthpoint Foundation.
Together with everyones effort, of course plenty of cries and laughter, lets bring unity, support and progression on these devastating circumstances faced by those who we share the same planet with.
