Upcoming Earthquake Appeal Events

It’s very heartening to hear of lots of fundraising events across the country. Whether an event raises thousands, or just a few pounds – it all will help CAN’s work to help re-build lives in Nepal. So thank you to all event organisers and fundraisers.

During the past week two stand out events were from Nepalese themed evenings:

Carte Blanche Events raised £15,381 from a Nepalese meal evening at their kitchens at Royston in Hertfordshire! Thanks to Maz Sharifrazi for organising this.

John Porter from Caldbeck raised £5,000 from a Nepal evening featuring guest speakers Sir Chris Bonington and Doug Scott  plus a Nepalese meal prepared by Mike Townend and Fiona Ford.

Fri 12th/Sat13th June  CLIMB FOR CAN, Keswick and Nationwide events BOOKINGS  NOW OPEN

Sir Chris Bonington and Doug Scott launched (14th May) #CLIMBFORCAN – which hopes to raise more than £100,000 for Nepal.

40 years after the first British ascent of Everest, two of the world’s greatest mountaineers have renewed their climbing partnership to raise desperately needed relief funds in the wake of the Nepal earthquakes.

Sir Chris Bonington and Doug Scott have teamed up at the start of Keswick Mountain Festival to launch #ClimbForCAN, a fundraising campaign to support the work of Community Action Nepal (CAN) in remote regions of Nepal.

Next month, they will lead an ‘expedition’ to scale the height of Everest (8,848m) on the ice wall at King Kong Climbing Centre in Keswick and are inviting up to 240 members of the public to join the climb. To complete the expedition, the team will need to climb the wall 1,000 times within 24 hours, starting on Friday 12 June.

This special event will also commemorate the 40th anniversary of the first British ascent of Mount Everest in 1975, which was led by Bonington and put Scott on the summit. All funds raised by the project will go directly to the Community Action Nepal (CAN) Earthquake Appeal.

Doug Scott appeals to the public:
“Lives have been devastated, homes destroyed, families bereaved and children orphaned. It is so incredibly sad. Despite all that has happened I am optimistic. The Nepalese are resilient and resourceful, but they need our help. Please support #ClimbForCAN, either by getting behind the Sir Chris Bonington 24 Hour Everest Ice Wall Challenge, by creating your own challenge or simply donating on our JustGiving page. Any money that you give to CAN goes straight to the coal face. Please help. Whatever you can give goes a long way. Thank you”.

The powerful 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck Nepal on the 25th April 2015 has killed over 8,000 people and the death toll is likely to rise further as rescue efforts continue. The devastation was further intensified by another powerful earthquake on the 12th May 2015. The worst destruction has been in remote rural districts where access is extremely difficult. The impending monsoon threatens to further hamper relief efforts.According to the UN Office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs nearly 300,000 houses have been destroyed and over 250,000 severely damaged; 3.5 million people are in need of food assistance and 4.2 million require clean water and sanitation. Almost 1 million children cannot return to school.Rebuilding the lives, homes and communities destroyed by the earthquakes will take many years. It seems an insurmountable task but together we can make a difference.Our three charities (IPPG UK, PPUK and CAN) have over 20 years experience of working in the remote mountain regions of Nepal and all the money raised in our earthquake appeals will be used to deliver aid directly to the people of Nepal.  Please join us.
