Work on the building which will house the new Operating Theatre is well under way with the first part nearing completion. The expectation is for the work to be finished by the summer of 2018 ready for installation of the new equipment in September/October 2018.
Although the total sum for the required equipment is £160,000, because of access to Rotary Foundation Global Grant money and donations from other Rotary Clubs and Districts we ‘only’ need to raise £90,000 locally. We have currently raised just under £40,000.
Richard Power completed the Great Ethiopia Run on September 24th 2017 running 10k around the streets of Addis Ababa. Thanks to the generosity of work colleagues, friends, patients and fellow Rotarians approximately £10,000 was raised in sponsorship.
Kathy Gale swam the English Channel twice in her local pool raising £1,280 from friends and family.

Our thoughts are with the family of Edward Wheeler who was prematurely taken from us on 31st December 2017. The family asked for the collection at Edwards Memorial Service to go to Leicester Gondar Orthopaedic Partnership.
