A message from Janna Tamrakar (formerly Janna Leonard, from Chippy):
We urgently need tents to send to Nepal. There are no tents available in the shops, and the aid agencies have very few. People are living outside with no shelter. We want to collect tents and send them by courier. Have to be watertight and light weight is better as cheaper to send. Any tent – 2 man, 4 man – whatever. Please check your sheds for old unwanted tents as we really need them. The courier charge is a lot, but if the tents are free in the first place, then it is doable. Please, please help.”
If you want to help, please see this page on the Indiegogo website. Locals have already held a coffee morning to raise money for Nepal, which raised well over £500. Heather Leonard says thank you to all who contributed cakes at this.
