Team Smileawi Spanners’s story

Gus a volunteer for Smileawi Spanners has just returned from a life changing experience in Malawi, along with fellow volunteer Alan Stewart they managed to put 6 ambulances back on the road after many years lying redundant. What was fun but hard work for these two mechanics from Dunoon will be life saving to Malawians who need treatment at hospitals which they now have easier access too.

Gus is anxious to continue this work next year and is so enthusiastic to raise lots of funds he and his mate Rory are cycling the 96 mile West Highland Way over the next 3 days! Please help make their journey easier by sponsoring them.


All funds raised will be passed to the charity irrespective of whether my target is reached, not reached or exceeded.

Smileawi

A Scottish based charity set up to improve the dental services in Malawi. In a world where pain relief is a basic human right Malawi falls short, in the North of the country where there is a population of around 4.5 million people they only have 1 qualified dentist and around 30 dental therapists.

Our aims are to help alleviate this problem by

  1. Supporting the existing and the future workforce.
  2. Improving and maintaining the equipment and facilities.
  3. Promoting oral health and prevention
  4. Facilitating groups of self funded volunteers to travel to Malawi to provide free pain clinics to the local populations who otherwise have no access to dental care.
  5. Repairing and maintaining hospital vehicles with our branch charity Smileawi Spanners.
  6. Fundraising to support our activities.



Registered Charity Number: SC046434.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
