The season of goodwill is once again upon us. Christmas is a time for both giving and receiving – and the former can often be more rewarding than the latter. At Sparkle Dental Boutique near Brentford, we’ve had some great experiences getting involved in charitable causes.
Our charity work in London began in 2008, when Sunita and Kavita Verma completed a training course allowing them to volunteer for the charity Voluntary Reading Help. They now regularly work at a school in nearby Hanwell, helping a group of three children to improve their reading ability and gain confidence. We’ve since continued to focus on young people in West London, and in 2010 Sparkle Dental Boutique gave £3,000 to Hounslow Youth Counselling Service. This organisation provides counselling to anybody aged 11 to 25 in the community, offering a caring environment for the confidential discussion of problems. That same year, we gave £1,000 to the Seema Sharma Foundation, a charity set up to provide support to underprivileged communities in both India and East London.
Our donation to the Seema Sharma Foundation was a great way to simultaneously give support to communities close to home and also overseas. India has been a particular focus of much of our charity work. In 2009, members of the Sparkle team did a sponsored 18-mile walk for children living in slums in Goa, and Kavita even visited the slum for three weeks to help out. We’ve also given £2,000 to be used for a project harvesting rain in Bangalore, providing villagers with the means to safely gather rainwater. Meanwhile, Sunita and Kavita, not content with their work in Hanwell, visited Lallsott in 2007. In this tiny village, they painted classrooms, read with children and taught English.
These ventures have been deeply rewarding – it’s wonderful to know that our time and money are being spent on projects that really matter. And everybody at Sparkle loves getting news about Naipoki, the adorable baby elephant we adopted through The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.
