Appeal Update

Thank you to all of you that have donated and for the support offered both with events we are running here in the UK to raise money and with any projects we can support in Nepal.

You will have seen shocking pictures and footage of the events that are still unfolding as a result of the Earthquake, and we will continue to see more as the remote areas of Nepal are yet to be reached by rescue teams and the real extend of this disaster is yet to be realised.

Our appeal is a result of your desire to support and a public response to support the people that make Nepal so special. For me it is also a very personal appeal.

Nearly 25 years ago I visited an area of Nepal and came across an area that became one of my favorite places on the planet. I spent many a season working and guiding out there, training local staff and supporting local businesses. Many of my staff volunteered time in Nepal working with the local guides and we welcomed local guides to come and join us in the UK. My family lived there and their family with us.

More recently some of you were involved with me in a project lasting 2 years to support a rural school. Working with the community we repaired old classrooms and built new ones, supplied teaching material and sports equipment, and whilst some built and painted, others taught the school children and the community around it.
