I am overwhelmed with the generosity of those who came to the Nepal Fundraiser night at Cinque Restaurant Mona Vale last week, and the Fundraiser put on by Shane and Dave at the Collaroy Beach Hotel in June. Collectively we raised over $22,500 I would like to thank all of the sponsors and the management and staff at both Cinque Restaurant and the Collaroy Beach Hotel, and to all of those who attended bought raffle tickets and dug deep with the auction.
Thanks to RobertKlaric and Jon Harker our fabulous auctioneers for doing such a fantastic job. We are now $10,000 over our target of $50,000 and are heading towards $70,000. This will hopefully build 3 schools in remote areas of Nepal and provide education to deserving children. I will be departing for Nepal on the 8th November and will be joined by several volunteers. If you know of anyone who would like to join our team please contact me, we are looking for builders, carpenter, anyone who is prepared to do some hard labour. You will need to pay for your own flights, pre and post accommodation in Kathmandu, share landcruiser transport costs to the village and food costs. Camping equipment will be supplied.
