Cory Band, will be performing in Charfield on Sunday July 14th at Warners Court. But that’s not all. The garden will be open from noon, there will be stalls selling street food, a bar with summer drinks, plants and Nepalese goods.
Mike and Barbara Adams have had many events at their home over the years, raising funds for charities from the National Garden Scheme to Save The Children but for the last few years have concentrated their efforts, supported by family and friends, to helping fund a small orphanage in Kathmandu, Nepal.
They met the founder of Grace Home, Daishara Rai, in the UK but have since been to Nepal several times, each time being absolutely enchanted by the children, who otherwise would be living on the streets, who work hard (and willingly!) at their education and who are always smiling. One of the biggest thrills has been to see two of the older children start university courses – an opportunity unthinkable had it not been for DR, who we are delighted to say will be with us for the concert
The biggest challenge has been to help fund a new home as their former rented one was badly damaged in the devastating earthquake of 2015. Now it is built, the children have moved in, they have their own water supply and the aim, apart from the running costs, is to help them to become self sufficient in electricity (the supply can be pretty erratic) by installing solar panels.
The band will be playing in the afternoon, entrance is by ticket only and these are available from Mike and Barbara at firstname.lastname@example.org; 07909 924528; 01453 261078 or from Robinsons Florists in Wotton.
