Story

I am running the London Marathon this year, on behalf of the Gurkha Welfare Trust, because I'd like to raise money to contribute towards rebuilding a school in Nepal.

This is in memory of my school friend, Lt Edward Drummond-Baxter and his colleague LCpl Siddhanta Kunwar, who served as members of the Royal Gurkha Rifles, and were tragically killed whilst serving alongside eachother in Afghanistan.

I am hoping to raise £2,000, which will contribute towards the £98,000 cost of rebuilding Shree Saraswoti Secondary School in Ramechhap District, Nepal, which was damaged during the 2015 earthquake.

Find out more about Ed and Siddhanta's story and the ongoing work being done to rebuild the school in their memory via the link below:
