As we move towards the excitement of hosting Doug Scott OBE again this Saturday for his presentation ‘A Crawl Down the Ogre’ a further reconciliation was needed to finalise the amount raised for Reach Out for Nepal this year.
I am delighted to announce that the figure has surged to £10,723.69 beating our target of £10,500, together with the two previous years the total now raised stands at an incredible £25,676.78 more than a thousand pounds more than the budgeted costs for the fitting out of the Main School Building, it’s Science Lab & the Schools associated Hostels for it’s pupils who travel from far & wide.
On Saturday evening we will present Doug with a cheque for £8,900 representing the balance of funds not yet transferred to his charity Community Action Nepal. However the good news doesn’t stop there, through the cafe we have sold 9 of Doug’s iconic photographic prints which have brought in another £2,365.00, these proceeds also go to CAN to use elsewhere to support their other projects in Nepal.
All who have helped us throughout the time since the devastating Earthquake in April 2015 deserve to feel proud by at our collective achievement & the help it will bring to Headmaster Purna & all at the Melamchi School.
