South East London Nepalis Donate £101
The Nepalese community in South East London, organisers of the Nepali New Year’s Eve on 16th April 2001, has donated £101 to HELP NEPAL Network.
About 400 Nepalese had gathered and HeNN had set up a stall with its banner and photographs of its projects. Many people enquired about HeNN and some of them immediate donations.
Five standing orders totaling £8 per month and lump sum donations totaling £80 were received during the event. Many people have promised to send the donations later.
The organisers gave a brief introduction of HeNN and announced that 25 pence from each ticket (£5) sold would go to HeNN.
Many people, who already knew about HeNN, were also pleased to meet some of the faces behind the campaign.
It was a great opportunity to promote HeNN and the gesture shown by the organisers and others was great. Our special thank goes to the organisers of the evening. Messrs Durga Pandey.
