A summer ball has raised £6,222 to help rebuild a village in Nepal devastated by an earthquake earlier this year.
Last May, Ed Hullah, who is based in Craven Arms and Pershore-based Phil Llewellyn visited the country following its first earthquake 80km north-west of the capital Kathmandu. At the time, their mission was to help with the humanitarian rescue and during their visit, there was a second earthquake near the Chinese border.
Since then, the two paramedics set up ‘Rebuild Nepal’, a not-for-profit organisation raising funds to help provide safer earthquake-resistant houses and public buildings.
As part of that fundraising, an event was held at the Bank House Hotel in Bransford, Worcestershire during which Phil Llewellyn gave a presentation on his initial trip to country.
The £6,222 raised will help build four houses. Phil plans to return to Nepal to the village of Kaule later this year to help. You can still support and sponsor the cause by visiting www.gofundme.com/RebuildInNepal
