BMT employees support premature and ill babies with 2,500 mile charity ride

Posted 13 August 2012 · Add Comment

Two employees from BMT Defence Services and BMT ARGOSS, subsidiaries of BMT Group Ltd, are set to embark on a challenging journey which will see them make an epic motorcycle ride from Bath, UK to Gdansk in Poland.

With the trip fully funded by the two riders, all donations and sponsorship raised will go directly to two local care centres for premature and ill babies - the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) in Bath and Polskie Stowarzyszenie na Rzecz Osob z Uposledzeniem (PSOUU), The Polish Association for Persons with Mental Disability in Gdansk.

Covering a staggering 2,500 miles, both Ian Fraser, Director at BMT ARGOSS and Brian Welsh, Principal Electrical Engineer at BMT Defence Services will begin their journey on 17th August 2012 and look to finish their ride the following Sunday 26th August.  The route will take them through Belgium, Holland, Germany and finally into Poland experiencing all sorts of demanding weather and road conditions.

Ian Fraser comments: “Inspiration for this trip came from my three year old son who had to spend a week in the NICU following his birth.  Despite undertaking many motorcycle trips around Europe on a variety of machines, I am excited to take up this new challenge and raise as much money as possible for the two organisations.”

The NICU in Bath combines advanced technology and trained healthcare professionals to provide specialised care for new born babies. The PSOUU in Gdansk provides equalisation of opportunity for people with mental disability by providing parental support through to creation of opportunities for people with mental disability and their families.
