A Registered Dental Nurse at Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is currently in training to trek the highest trekking peak in Nepal, to raise funds in support of Kingston Hospital’s Princess Alexandra Wing fund.
On 10th March, Tunde Kabodi, who works within the Oral Services Department at Kingston Hospital, will be climbing the Mera Peak, which stands at 6,476 metres above sea level.
Through the 20-day trek, Tunde is aiming to raise funds for Kingston Hospital Charity, to enable the purchase of mobile air cooling and purifying units for patient treatment rooms within the hospital’s Princess Alexandra Wing.
Speaking about the upcoming challenge, Tunde said: “I have taken on a few mountain treks in the past; in Europe, South America and Africa. One of my biggest challenges to date has been climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, which was an incredible and life-changing experience. I feel that the mountains are calling me, so I have decided to take on another big challenge.”
Interim Head of Kingston Hospital Charity, Rob Aldous said: “I continue to be amazed at the dedication and commitment of staff at Kingston Hospital who are continuously looking at ways of raising money to enhance the care that can be afforded their patients. We wish Tunde the best of luck with her latest challenge and continued success with her fundraising.”
