The north-west thinks Kate Moss has the least attractive celebrity smile

IT'S National Smile Month (13 May 2007 to 12 June 2007) and to celebrate, Wisdom has released some interesting research into the nation’s favourite smiles. The study reveals that people from the North-West think Kate Winslet has the most attractive smile with 22% of the vote, closely followed by Cameron Diaz (18%) and Kate Moss lagging behind with only 1% of the vote. 

When it comes to smiles, 79% of North-West individuals aren’t looking for perfection but want a good set of well cleaned teeth. As we grow older the smile is still important: Interestingly 46% of people from the North-West are more concerned about their teeth rotting than getting wrinkles (23%) or going grey (7%). 

Rather more shockingly, some men seem not to care about their smile with 1 in 10 admitting they spend less than 30 seconds a day brushing their teeth. On the whole, most of the North-West populace (43%) deserve a pat-on-the-back for spending the recommended 2-5 minutes. Luckily Brits across the country do also seem to be aware of the importance of thorough cleaning – with 64% stating that cleaning between teeth is most important when brushing.

Dr. Mervyn Druian from the London Centre for Cosmetic Dentistry says:- “It’s great to see that most Scots are spending the recommended two minutes twice a day cleaning their teeth. However, we need to make sure that people clean effectively between their teeth as well. I recommend using a soft filament brush so you don’t harm your gums and brushing in circular movements. Also floss at least once a day before brushing.”

CSV, the UK’s largest volunteering charity has teamed up with Tesco and the youth volunteering charity v to recruit 20 full-time Community Catalysts to lead voluntary projects at 20 different locations.

The Community Catalysts will get involved in identifying and creating projects that can benefit local communities from setting up a youth club, decorating a school or helping out in an old peoples’ home. They may even identify a grot-spot that needs to be transformed. The Catalysts will learn new skills in project management, media and marketing and will play a vital part in inspiring other young people to take part in the projects that they set up.

Some of the CSV Community Catalysts will have an opportunity to live away from home while others may prefer to live at home if they are located close to one of the 20 projects.

Training and support will be given by CSV while there will be help available with accommodation and living costs.

Anyone interested in becoming a Community Catalyst or other full-time volunteering opportunities with CSV can go on line at or call CSV on 0800 374 991.

The deadline for applying to become a Community Catalyst is 8 June 2007."   Yours sincerely,   Sue Farrington.
