The BDA Benevolent Fund held this year’s Annual General Meeting on 21 June.
Chaired by BDA President and Patron of the Fund, Dr Barry McGonigle, the AGM provided a great platform to discuss all achievements, issues and future goals of the Fund.
Officers of the Fund were also officially elected, with Dr Ann Rockey becoming Chairman, Dr William Nichols becoming Vice-Chairman, Prof Ros Keeton was named Honorary Treasurer and Dr Dianne Waller was named Honorary Secretary.
In addition, Dr McGonigle had the difficult task of judging all the great entries from the photography competition run as part of the ‘Be Active’ campaign. The winner was announced as ‘A Whirling of Wing Walkers’.
The BDA Benevolent Fund provides much-needed support to UK dentists and their families who are struggling financially while coping with accident, chronic illness and other stressful life-changing events.
The Fund relies on the generous donations of the profession to continue its work,
so thank you for your on-going support.
The BDA Benevolent Fund would also like to extend its thanks to Dental Update who kindly provided refreshments for the Bend Fund AGM.
