Keela International Ltd to become Platinum Business Club Member

We are delighted to welcome Keela International Ltd as a Platinum Member of The Gurkha Welfare Trust Business Club. Keela has provided quality outdoor clothing for over 30 years from its base on the East Coast of Scotland, the perfect place to innovate and test outdoor garments for the changeable British weather.

Having read about The Gurkha Welfare Trust’s work, Keela decided to donate warm weather clothing to the GWT team in the hills of Nepal. The Trust has a staff of over 500 which provides medical, financial and community aid to Gurkha veterans, their widows, and communities in Nepal. Keela’s support also compliments the Trust’s 2022 Winter Allowance, where our team distributed hats, gloves, and scarves to Gurkha pensioners.

David Watson, Corporate Partnerships Officer at The Gurkha Welfare Trust said, “We are extremely grateful to Keela International, who made a donation of warm weather clothing to our hardworking teams in Nepal. Nepal has extreme weather conditions, with bitterly cold winters and monsoon rains for much of the year. Keeping our staff suitably equipped is crucially important so that they can carry out their vital work.”

Any businesses interested in joining The Gurkha Welfare Trust Business Club please contact David Watson, Corporate Partnerships Officer at davidwatson@gwt.org.uk or call 01722343115.
