Story

The idea is we have a paddle down the river Dee to raise money for the relief effort for Nepal.

We have all enjoyed paddling in Nepal; marvelling at the Himalayas, 

enjoying the great white water, having a great cheap holiday and loving the friendly face and generous Nepali people.

It is now our turn to be generous.

Suggested donation of a minimum of £20.00 (if we get 500 people we have raised £10,000.

 

If we donate this to Community Action Nepal (CAN), Doug Scott’s long-running charity, we can get 25% added to this from the government.


The Monsoon is arriving and it will get worse, the wheat crop need harvesting now and the rice need planting in the next month.

 

The busy time of year and now the Nepali have to re-build their houses repair all the terraces.

 

This is not a quick fix, this is going to take time and money, this not just about getting a few tarps and tents and  rice and dhal to the stricken villages.

This is about long term solutions.

We the paddlers have been going there from the late 70s and we the paddlers should therefore help for the long term.

There will be in Llangollen at locations to be found, lectures, slide shows films, friendship, beer. So come and make a weekend of it. Valley
Crucis Camping or the normal supply of B&Bs

Come Join us in Llangollen 27th/28th June
