Emma Abdullah ~ Founder and Chairman.

Emma started MOTS with Dawn Carter at the end of 2012 but sadly Dawn passed away before they had chance to share their dream of helping others. The sad loss of Emma's friend made her more determined to make MOTS become a reality in her memory, so no one faced this journey alone.

Sam Williams ~ Treasurer

Sam is our treasurer and deals with the financial side of MOTS and helps Emma with the paperwork, fundraising and awareness side of MOTS too! She has also been instrumental in getting MOTS off the ground & continues to be involved in all key areas of MOTS. Sam is sister in law and best friend to our founder. She has seen everything Emma has gone through and understands her transplant history and complications. Before helping Emma get MOTS established Sam was a health care assistant for the NHS and now studies accountancy to help her role of treasurer.

Amanda Watts ~ Secretary

Amanda has always worked in an office environment and for the last 2 years she has been the head of the cashiers office in a solicitor's firm in South Wales. She is used to working in an administrative capacity both on computers and writing to clients, so we are sure this will help Amanda in her role of our Secretary. She is excited to be joining MOTS and looks forward to helping us grow.
