Jim Campbell visits village area in Nepal

Posted by: In: Trips 29 Dec 2012 Comments: 0
Jim Campbell of Port Glasgow visited Nepal in November 2012 in connection with his own fund raising efforts back home for Nepal Schools Trust.
Jim is fund raising through a sponsored ascent of Ben Nevis and other initiatives in his local area.
In this respect we would like to thank, so far, the following:

  • Arnold Clark Automobiles, Jim’s employer, for their kind donation of £250.
  • West Renfrewshire Lodges, of which Jim is a member, for their kind donation of £275

  • enlarging and equipping the health centre
  • to  buy some regular meat for the limited food budget at the Special Unit for profoundly deaf children in Pragatinagar.
  • scholarships for children from very poor familes in the Surya Kiran Primary School catchment.
