An Aberdeen surgeon who won a daring TV challenge is to chat about her experience as part of a fundraising initiative.
Law firm Ledingham Chalmers is taking part in the Venture initiative, which aims to grow as much money as possible from £100 to benefit children’s charity Charlie House.
Challenging team members to “Venture” out of their comfort zones, tomorrow night, SAS Who Dares Wins champion Louise McCullough, who is a city-based surgeon and rugby medic, will be speaking to the team and members of the public.
Taking place at the firm’s Rose Street office from 6-9pm, she will speak about motivation and resilience, as well as her experience on the show.
Jennifer Young, Ledingham Chalmers’ chairman and partner, said: “Our project is around the theme of ‘out of the comfort zone’, setting ourselves weekly challenges in return for donations for this magnificent cause. Setting the scene is this evening of inspiring chat with Lou. All we ask in return is a minimum £20 donation using the LEDS Factor JustGiving page.
“It’s really touching, we’ve had people pledging up to £100. We’ve got Charlie Dog coming to the office as well. We’ve had a connection with Charlie House for a long time, and I very recently joined the board of directors as well.”
Lou said: “It’s a really good thing. I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s event.
“I’m more than delighted to help out.”
The event is one of a number of different activities the team has organised.
Others include raffles, bake sales, bacon roll runs, a silent disco, a tyre flipping competition and other challenges, such as facing their fears with a snake in the office.
The closing event will be with a film night at the Belmont Filmhouse on March 20, with a screening of Top Gun.
