Women's Exhibition - and our chosen charity is ...

Alongside the work of the Friends of Angel's Orphanage supporting the 21 orphaned or abandoned children under their shelter, the charity also creates projects to empower women, to increase their skills base and to give them independence so that they can support themselves and their children.
In April 2015 nearly 9,000 people were killed and 22,000 injured when an earthquake measuring a magnitude of 7.8 hit Nepal.
Eight million people were affected and many remain homeless a year on in what has been described as 'a country of tarpaulins, tents and tin roofed shacks'.
We are supporting the Friends of Angel's Orphanage at the Women's Exhibition and Craft Sale. Please visit their stall and if you have some spare coins, please drop them in the collecting boxes.
Thank you.

Maiti Nepal has become a home to women and girls--whether married or not--who have been exploited, neglected or their rights grossly violated by family and society...

Earthquake Nepal is a collection of more than 50 stories from people and organisations who experienced the earthquakes of Nepal 2015. Money raised will go towards helping rebuild schools in rural areas.
