Reach Out for Nepal Day – 22nd June 2019

We are pleased to confirm this year’s charity event will be 22nd June 2019.

With the extremely generous support in both time & money of so many people over the 4 years since the devastating Earthquake in April 2015 we can confirm that by November 2018 our Reach Out for Nepal Fund had raised £34, 450.41 to help re-build the Melamchi School & it’s Hostels. All monies are forwarded onto Doug Scott’s charity Community Action Nepal (CAN) where we can be sure we get the money to where it is needed. In addition we have  helped CAN raise further monies (in the region of £18,000) by hosting Doug’s lectures, selling Doug’s signed photographic prints & various Nepalese artefacts. We hope you will be able to support us & CAN again this year either by helping on the day or digging a little into your pockets. We still have a number of prints available from the Café at any time.
