Marylebone Cricket Club visit our work

We were delighted to be visited by members of Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) yesterday at our Headquarters in Pokhara, Nepal.

A thirteen-man squad are currently touring the country, accompanied by other members of the club, challenging Nepali teams along the way.

With the players and staff having departed London on Friday, they arrived in Kathmandu on Saturday, and faced Nepal Under-19’s at the Tribhuvan University International Cricket Ground in Kathmandu on Sunday.

Yesterday, the team were warmly welcomed by staff at our headquarters in Pokhara where they each received a traditional Nepali khada scarf.

Afterwards, we took them to see some the vital work we’re doing at one of our Residential Homes where we provide round-the-clock care to Gurkha veterans and widows who would otherwise struggle to live alone.

Next, we took them to see our Welfare Centre located in Kaski, which hosts one of our medical clinics providing an international standard of healthcare and medication to Gurkha veterans and their families.

We caught up with Club Manager Richard Greatorex and Team Captain Jimmy Adams about their visit:
