    Don't have time to donate right now?

    Story

    In February I visited Kathmandu with Dave Phoenix who has raised tens of thousands of pounds to provide schools for migrant children working in the brick fields around Nepal. While there we also went to the Cerebral Palsy Self-Help School in Lalitpur.

    http://www.cpnepal.org/.

    This is the ONLY SCHOOL IN NEPAL (population 26million) for children with cerebral palsy and does amazing work in often very adverse conditions. While there I went into the kitchen (see photo) which consists of little more than a table top hob and some very basic furniture. This has to feed up to fifty or more very deserving children every day. On my return to Britain I decided to be a bit cheeky and approached a kitchen fitting company, BK Nolte Contracts,

    http://www.bknc.co.uk/

    based in Wrexham, North Wales, my home area. Amazingly, they have promised to donate a complete kitchen to the school (thank you, Harry Ruler and Hattie Jones). Now, we just have to get it the four and a half thousand miles to Kathmandu! Shipping companies I have approached estimate the cost to be about £500, depending on the weight and dimensions of what eventually gets sent out. There may also be a discount for charity and/or sending a volunteer out with it.
    So, please can you help us raise the money so that this kind donation can reach the school and life, difficult enough anyway for these guys, can get a little bit easier for the hardworking staff and the lovely kids at CP School.
    This is a straightforward project which also fulfils one of my criteria which is that every penny donated goes straight into the school itself, reduced only by the unavoidable ones such as bank or crowdfunding fees. All travel, accommodation costs e.t.c are borne personally by the people involved.

      This is the kitchen the staff at the school are using to feed the kids. It sits in a gap between two corridors and is patently unfit for purpose. We have the opportunity to provide modern, safe, efficient kitchen equipment. We have that kitchen, thanks to BK Nolte Kitchens of Wrexham but we have to find the means to get it to Nepal. Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Approaching retirement but with little interest in retiring I currently teach young adults with learning difficulties. This project links my love of Nepal and my work with these kids. When this project has finished I will work on another one. Love it!
