LONDON: Run for Change, a London-based charity supporting building schools in Nepal, organized a charity dinner and dance at Clay Oven in Kingsbury Lounge in London on October 1.
The fundraising event, which incorporated dinner, dance, raffles and other various entertainment programmes, was attended by scores of benevolent people.
According to the group, the night was a big hit with all the participants enjoying it to the fullest. Earlier, it had organized a 10-k run in London with the same motive.
"To run and raise funds as a team so that we can improve our fitness and contribute to our society" is the motto of the team.
The team says it is still at a short of target amount of £10,800, which it plans to send for the construction of three school buildings in Nepal’s remote areas. “Hence, we would like to encourage anyone interested in supporting us to donate by visiting www.justgiving.com/runforchange2010,” it said in a press statement.
Dr Suresh Chandra Chalise, Nepalese ambassador to the UK, was the chief guest, who also was all praise to the Run For Change project and the team's efforts.
