The television crew covered meeting at UHAS


On the 3rd March, Motec member Mr. Sanjay Z. Baldota Consultant Breast & Oncoplastic Surgeon is talking part in the Walkie Talkie Tower Climb for GOSH.
 This involves walking (or running) the steps to the summit of one of London’s most recognisable landmarks, 20 Fenchurch Street – affectionately known as the ‘Walkie Talkie’ building – to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity (GOSH Charity) & Motec.
‘Feel the burn over 36 floors and 828 steps before being rewarded at the top with a glass of fizz and spectacular 360-degree views of London from the Sky Garden’
 The first £250 raised will be donated to GOSH but Sanjay is donating all donations beyond £250 to Motec, so Motec will collect all the donations through My Donate and then pass £250 to GOSH.
 Donations collected beyond £250 will be put towards Breast Surgery projects in Ghana by Motec teams.

Motec members Linda & Elaine Bigham will be braving the cold to walk 20k around our capital city to raise funds for our charities latest project of building a new school in Nankese Abisim, Ghana -'The Schools and Health Foundation Project in Ghana'.

Linda & Elaine have been members of Motec for many years and are passionate about the charity and all it stands for. Their working visits to Ghana are awe inspiring and humbling.
Linda is now retired from her work in orthopaedics and Elaine has taught children.

Setting out from Southwark, past Tower Bridge, we head west along the River taking in many of the capitals' famous landmarks. At halfway it's our rest stop in Vauxhall where we stock up on snacks before heading back to base camp for a finish line medal, a welcome hot meal & drinks.
