Bryanston's annual Nepal Charities Fair
On Sunday 8 November Bryanston pupils held their annual Nepal Charities Fair in aid of two Nepal charities, Right4Children and Freedom Matters.
Each boarding house had its own stall or fundraising activity, ranging from selling popular Nepalese momos (pork dumplings) and running a pick ‘n’ mix stall, to selling a variety of donated and home-made items, as well as a raffle and silent auction.
We are still collecting the final amounts and we believe we have succeeded in raising over £14,000. This money will go towards helping build and equip a catering and hospitality school on the outskirts of Pokhara, where young people who have been the victims of trafficking and earthquake survivors will be taught, alongside fee-paying students, the skills necessary to enter the hospitality world at a high level, and at no cost to themselves or the charities.
In addition, a group of IB pupils ran a stall in aid of Rebuild Marpak VDC, a project run by Freedom Matters and Right4Children, raising £2,000 towards rebuilding essential buildings in an earthquake-stricken area of Nepal. The fundraising for Nepal continues with Mr Dickson’s Dreadlock Challenge. Find out more here.
Congratulations to our pupils who worked so hard to support these vital causes and thank you to all the parents, families and friends who helped us to raise such a fantastic sum of money.
