The Himalayan Trust’s first project in 1960 was to build a school. And still today, the education of young people in the remote mountainous districts of Nepal is the Trust’s top priority. We delight in UK schools helping those in Nepal, We have seen many children in this country enjoy being involved and making a contribution, while also learning lots about children in a very different culture from their own. If your school would like to help, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Schools which have recently supported the Trust include Brambletye School in East Grinstead and Bedford School.
The children at Brambletye School chose The Himalayan Trust UK as their charity of the year after our late chairman George Band visited the school and talked to them about the Trust’s work. Fund-raising activities ranging from home clothes days, a 4×4 safari and an auction of artwork donated by pupils, staff and friends of the school, were set into action and the school raised a staggering £12,519.80. Thank you everyone at Brambletye!
Bedford School raised over £3,000 at a Snow Ball in aid of the Himalayan Trust UK. A group of Bedford boys also went on a life-changing trek to Everest Base Camp, and the father-in-law of a school director bid a generous £2,000 for a print of Everest signed by Sir Edmund.
