Fundraising at The Red House
The Red House Dental Practice, Malton has raised many thousands of pounds for charities over the last 10 years, particularly for Marie Curie Cancer Care.
JOHN 'O' GROATS TO LANDS END
In May 2014, Richard cycled from John 'o' Groats to Lands End to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care as part of a Denplan team. They covered over 900 miles in 9 days and in total raised over £64,000 (our patients and friends generously donating £2500 towards that total).
2012 marked Richard’s 20th year at the Red House, and a number of events took place to raise funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care and St Catherine’s Hospice.
RED HOUSE ROCKS MALTON!
In April 2012 we held an evening concert and hog roast in aid of our two charities. The evening featured local band The Dangleberries along with many of our talented patients and even some of the Red House team.
