As you may be aware, tragedy struck once again in Nepal, when on May 5th a second Earthquake struck the country causing loss to hundreds of lives and homes.
Our partner, The Gurkha Welfare Trust who have been providing financial care and medical treatment to veteran Gurkhas and now are actively involved in providing aid and assistance to Nepalese communities and they need your support. As you will no doubt be aware, The Gurkhas have supported British forces for over 200 years including during both the first and second world wars and now it’s our time to give back to help them and their families in this difficult time.
The Nepalese tragedy has prompted a nationwide campaign and Alpha 1 are keen to help in any way possible by organizing events and fundraising activities. In July 2015, 4 of the senior management team will be embarking on a 100km Trailwalk to raise funds for the GWT and to assist those in Nepal who’s lives have been shattered. We are raising money through our JustGiving site which can be found at JustGiving.
Another fantastic way to support the Nepalese community is to join Robert Loomes and Co’s ongoing raffle where, for just £10, you could walk away with a watch worth over £7000 with 100% of the raffle funds going to The Gurkha Welfare Trust and The Mountain trust! The watch, the case and dial are made right here in Britain and the extensively reworked mechanism is a Smiths 19 jewel manual wind British mechanism. To grab one of these for yourself, all you have to do is go to http://www.robertloomes.com/raffle-for-nepal.html.
