Harcourts Foundation Supports Canterbury Charity Hospital

Harcourts Foundation Supports Canterbury Charity Hospital

Smiles will get a bit brighter for those people for whom dental care is unaffordable with the contribution of $10,000 by the Harcourts Foundation to the Canterbury Charity Hospital.

The funds will be used to expand the hospital’s current oral care facilities into a larger dental surgery on Harewood Road in Bishopdale, Christchurch.

In accepting a cheque from Harcourts Gold in Christchurch, Canterbury Charity Hospital founder and surgeon Phil Bagshaw said the new oral surgery would increase the number of procedures, providing better dental training and options for the community.

“Because we receive no government assistance we are totally reliant on the support of hundreds of volunteers and financial assistance is like gold to us,” continued Bagshaw.

Harcourts Gold business owners Lynette and John McFadden said, “we have seen first hand the benefits of the Charity Hospital so we were delighted to be able to contribute via the Harcourts Foundation.”

“I used to work as a staff nurse with Mr Bagshaw so it gives us great pleasure to help,” stated Lynette McFadden.
