Our aim this year was to provide Christmas treats for the children, and new school clothes for the youngest (who in time-honoured fashion usually only receive hand-me-downs!).
Our fund-raiser was the Aide Nepal Magnoac Christmas Singalong, Over 50 friends and supporters joined us for an evening of carols and Christmas songs, helped by mulled wine and punch, and tasty snacks. We had very enjoyable evening, and greatly exceeded our target of €400 for the event.
A massive thank you to Melodie and Ross Minty for organising the event. Thanks also to members and friends for lending a hand and providing scrumptious snacks.
With the proceeds of the evening, we were able to meet our aim of supplying new clothes for the children, and ensure they enjoyed an enjoyable Christmas dinner. Sayni Chaudhary, who runs the home, sent us this message: “Thank you so much for your support. It is important for our children have a good day ahead”.
