Help for Nepal earthquake victims from South Holland
Over £3,000 was raised in relief aid by Ram Krishna Bashyal and his business partner Deepak Chatri at the Gurkha Oven in Spalding.
The money came from a charity meal at the restaurant attended by 80 people, when a raffle was held, as well as donations from people who were unable to be present, plus £205 from a raffle at the Prior’s Oven in Spalding.
That came to £2,505, and a Red Cross charity collection amounted to £427. A further £275 was donated by Ayscoughfee School in Spalding, and Ram says more donations are still coming in.
He said: “I am really happy and humble at the support we received from everyone. I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who came or who supported us. I am happy and proud with Spalding.”
Ram liaised with a group of emergency workers to identify help was needed in a village left with literally nothing.
