Over the past few months Himalayan Learning has had a number of very interesting donations and donors that we thought we should highlight.
When one of our Trustees Helena Williams-Pugh (whose real job is as a florist and photographer) was renovating her new cottage with her husband Toni she decided to share her joy of gardening with those in the Himalaya.
Helena opened her garden to visitors last summer to raise funds for Himalayan Learning. As word spread, she was not only invited to take part in a BBC documentary, but was also visited by English Gardens magazine who did a story on the garden, Helena and Himalayan Learning.
For the second year in a row Himalayan Learning was also supported by London Marathon-running Dave Wilkes.
Himalayan Learning has also been the chosen charity for a number of school and small-children groups such as the children of the Canford School in Dorset who raised £442. For those children and for children and teachers from other schools that have decided to donate to help children living in extreme rural poverty in the Himalaya, we can only give our thanks!
