CANCELLED: Gurkha Band Concert

Start date: 23/11/2020

We are sorry to announce the cancellation of Gurkha Band Concert.

Safety of supporters, combined with the dispersal of The Band of the Brigade of Gurkhas due to relief efforts, leads to the decision to cancel the Gurkha Band Concert. While we are sad to announce this, particularly in what would’ve been the 20th year, we want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has kindly and generously supported the event so far.

Plans are in place to return in 2021, yet again fundraising for one of our projects to help Gurkha veterans and their wider communities in Nepal. In 2019 the funds raised with your support helped to provide over 220 students from Shree Deuti Adharbhut Vidyalaya with a safe environment to study. A soon-to-be-completed, new, earthquake-resilient classroom block now replaces its leaking and unsafe predecessor.

The 2020 concert aimed to fund another of our earthquake-resilient projects, a home for one of our Gurkha veterans or widows. Read more about how these homes are improving lives and providing safe shelter, for veterans like Rifleman Uttamkumar Rai, here.
