A huge thank you to everyone who came along to the sold out Gig for Malagiri on Friday 15 February. We were treated to such an extraordinary wealth of musical talent so an extra special thanks to our bands and performers who were all truly amazing!
The total raised from ticket sales and donations on the night was a magnificent: £454.15
This will hopefully be the first of many and we’re aiming for bigger and better next time so watch this space. We hope you enjoy these images from the night:
In October 2017 a small group travelled to Nepal in a self-funded trip to visit the school and to commemorate the life of Kevin Fossey. Here’s their story:
For a number of years, the School of Education has supported a small school in a rural village in Nepal. Kevin Fossey, a senior lecturer and former head teacher, who sadly passed away in 2016, initiated the project. As friends and colleagues we wanted to take the opportunity to see the school but to also make a fitting tribute for Kevin.
We spent the first few days in Kathmandu. The city is difficult to describe –it is vibrant, polluted, overcrowded, busy, spiritual and exceptionally interesting.
We went shopping with the outgoing head teacher and her colleague to purchase the following items for the school:
Miscellaneous arts, crafts, stationery and other class resources/games
We are absolutely delighted to report that the repairs and refurbishments to the school are now complete. Following the earthquake, we provided large tents (erected in the playground) to ensure that essential activities could be sustained whilst the building work took place.
These images of the children enjoying their new accommodation are both joyful and inspiring. This has been made possible by so many generous donations and we are incredibly grateful for the support that was given.
