What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Hello everyone,

My name is Donna Hurst. I started dental nursing in 2008 and became qualified in 2010.

I recently applied for a place with Bridge2Aid to volunteer in Tanzania in May 2019 and I have been lucky enough to be accepted.

I feel that this is a chance of a life time opportunity for me.

I will be travelling out there and working with a group of dentists and dental nurses .

My aim is to offer my extensive dental nursing skills and knowledge of oral health and hygiene to the communities within Tanzania.

In order for me to achieve this goal I would need to raise £2000 to help cover the cost of me travelling over there as well as assisting Bridge2Aid.

I would be so grateful for any donations, no matter how small.

Please help me make a difference.

Here is some more information on Bridge2Aid and what they do,

Since 2004 Bridge2Aid has now provided training which has given access to safe emergency dental care for over 5 million people in Tanzania. We have done this through sending volunteers from the UK dental community to train rural health workers. We are saving lives and freeing millions more from the prospect of misery and pain.

More than 70% of the world’s population has no access to the most simple dental pain relief, leaving billions to face a daily battle with pain in the toughest of life circumstances. There is a desperate need to tackle oral disease, infection and chronic pain in communities throughout the developing world – to enable people to work, attend school and care for their families. Our work in these communities means local people are able to function free from pain, and avoid the risk of preventable infections and diseases.
