Tim Lee, Nepal earthquake fundraising music night

Rotary Club of Nantwich is to stage a musical night at the Nantwich Town FC to raise funds for victims of the tragic Nepal earthquakes.

More than 9,000 people died and 22,300 were injured in the disasters which struck two years ago in April 2015.

900,000 homes destroyed or left uninhabitable, 3.5 million people left homeless, and 52,000 classrooms obliterated.

Rotary Club members are hoping to do their bit and help the people of Ghanpokhara repair and restore their earthquake-damaged drinking water source.

Villagers have to trek four hours on foot for water.

But when completed, the project will provide a drinking water supply to 27 households and benefit 165 people.
