Finlay Brewer sponsors Music for Nepal Concert
On the 25th April, tragedy hit the small Himalayan nation of Nepal when an earthquake measuring 7.8 on the Richter scale struck the country. Killing more than 8,500 people and leaving more than 250,000 people homeless Nepal is a country in crisis. UN officials report that a month on, millions of people are still in need of basic humanitarian assistance.
Join us on Saturday 6th June from 5.30pm for a 6.30pm start in St Marys Church Acton W3 9NW

TICKETS: Adults £12.50, Children over 14 years £5 (Children under 14 free) Includes food, raffle & licensed bar.
There will be music including Sing Gospel Choir and food from local Nepalese Restaurants and much more.
The funds we raise will be going direct to the Nepali community in villages outside of the main city, where aid that countries have given is not always getting to. A bank account has been set up and funds will be transferred directly from that account to the people on the ground. The bonus being there is no middle man to be paid for. There will be a pick up fact sheet at the concert outlining how the money raised will be spent.
Nepal, one of the poorest nations in the world, unsurprisingly suffers from a basic infrastructure countrywide particularly in terms of its transportation network, which is making the on-going aid effort even harder for those trying to handle the disaster. In Kathmandu, the capital, local companies and disaster agencies are struggling not only to help those in the city, but also those in remote areas who have been all but completely isolated by the earthquake.
Furthermore, whilst the people of Nepal remain topmost in peoples’ minds, culturally Nepal has suffered enormously too with at least four out of the seven UNESCO World Heritage sites in the Kathmandu Valley being badly affected.
All the best,
