Some of you might remember that my husband, Vince, visited Nepal a few years ago. He has been involved in raising money with a group to provide wells in remote areas of the country. These provide clean drinking water for the people which in turn reduces the number of cases of dysentery and other diseases. He also took over a suitcase full of children’s clothing which was distributed in one of the villages. Now he is going again in October with other members of the group. To help raise money we are going to raffle some items at the concert we’re holding on Saturday. I’ll write more about that later. While in Nepal Vince had the opportunity to get quite near to the summit of Mt Everest. This was without oxygen too! But of course the plane in which he took the joyride was pressurised.

Nepal is a beautiful country but the people there are poor. I have been there with my husband years ago. I was organising a conference there for delegates from eleven countries hosted by the company I was working for. We did get time to see the place prior to the conference. We too had plans to get a flight to see the Everest but heavy clouds cancelled our plans.
