Fundraising for the Ginette Harrison School in Nepal
Thanks to the generous donations of our clients this year, we were able to help supply the Ginette Harrison School in Nepal with two complete sets of football kits via Shiva Charity. The kits were gratefully received and instantly put to use by the footy-loving children. Funds were also used by Shiva to buy a brick making machine so that villagers could properly rebuild their homes that were destroyed in the 2015 earthquake.
Mountain Kingdoms bake for charity
Last week Mountain Kingdoms had their own Bake Off and helped raised a tasty sum of £245 for the Nepali Children's Trust
The team baked hundreds of small cakes to feed the the 500 runners who took part in an off-road race in the Forest of Dean organised by Rogueruns. For every runner who took part, Rogueruns gave 50p to Mountain Kingdoms for their bakes. The £245 raised was then donated by Mountain Kingdoms to the Nepali Children's Trust who support the Newlife Centre orphanage in Nepal.
Nepal – one year after the earthquake
Today marks the anniversary of the earthquake that caused such terrible devastation to Nepal last April. As a result of the impact of the quake, thousands of lives were lost, vast swathes of homes, schools and buildings were destroyed or damaged and livelihoods were deeply affected. And yet, one year on, the indomitable local people have impressively rebuilt their lives and businesses. So, even as we pause and remember the dreadful loss of life last year, we can also celebrate the wonderful spirit and endeavour of the people of Nepal.
