Staff from the Longwood House Dental Practice, Longwood Gardens, Clayhall, took part in a 5k run and raised thousands for the Great Ormand Street Hospital charity.

More than 40 dentists, consultants, staff members and their families ran in the RBC Race for the Kids in Battersea.

Longwood managed to raise £6,500 and brought along the fun run’s youngest participant who was just two-years-old.

Principal dentist Dr Tasleem Ahmed said: “We’re honored to support the Race for the Kids for the first time this year. We’re thrilled to have entered over 40 participants and hope to increase this number year on year.”

More than 6,000 people took part in the fun run, which will help the hospital refurbish outdated facilities and will allow for more hospital spaces.

“It’s so inspiring to see everybody come together for such a fantastic cause and it’s wonderful to know that it will help to make a real difference to patients and families.”
