David Allen, clinic owner and manipulative therapist, is organising a  fundraising event on July 19th 2014 for Wessex Neurological Centre and Poole Hospital, (Portland Neurological Ward and the Epilepsy Department).

Have a  look at some of the people Smile 4 Wessex has helped, the charity raising money for the Wessex Neurological Centre. You Smile, We Smile, They Smile – Promo Video Launched http://www.smile4wessex.org/

In David’s words:

“In 2008 I had a massive stroke and complications.  In 2011, many of you may be aware I raised over £4,000 for Southampton and Poole Hospital doing a Triathlon and was made The Wessex Neurological Centre Fund Raiser of the Year.  In 2014 I want to raise at least £5,000. How I am going to do this? Well I plan to show you a piece of my anatomy, that hasn’t been seen for over 35 years!  My chin!

It’s a challenge that physically is much easier, but psychologically much more painful.  On the 19th of July I will have all my hair and beard shaved off!  At this rate the next time I will be doing this is when I’m 91! The money raised will be split between the two hospitals. The first saved my life, the second gave me back my quality of life.  I would ask you to give as much as you can, even if it is a little to such a worthy cause.  You can donate one of two ways, pop into the clinic and fill in the sponsorship form at the reception desk, or visit my Just Giving page online uk.virginmoneygiving.com/DavidAllen6, make sure you look at the promotional video. “
