The Gurkha Welfare Trust and the Royal Visit

The Gurkha Welfare Trust and the Royal Visit

The Gurkha Welfare Trust have announced that they raised an impressive £26 million in 2015 to spend on their many projects and initiatives in Nepal. This includes rebuilding the homes, schools and lives of Gurkha veterans, their families and the communities devastated by the earthquake last April. We were honoured to become a corporate partner of the Trust last year and will continue to raise funds for them in 2016.

The important work of the Gurkha Welfare Trust will be firmly in the spotlight later this month when Prince Harry travels to the Gurkha heartlands as part of his royal visit. Having served alongside Gurkha soldiers in Afghanistan, Prince Harry will visit the British Gurkha Camp in Pokhara and also go on a short trek in the Annapurnas where he will visit Gurkha communities and see some of the work done by the armed forces and GWT since the earthquake.
