A total of £5,500 has now been raised for a Nepal disaster fund by Rotary clubs in Grantham.

This incredible figure was reached with the help of a charity meal at The Everest Inn on Tuesday night, organised by Roger Graves of the Rotary Club of Grantham.

Sixty guests sat down to a “superb” meal at the restaurant, in Westgate, raising £1,500 which went on to be split between the Nepal fund and Dementia UK.

Roger thanked everyone for their support for these two very worthwhile causes and also to the people of Grantham who have supported fund-raising for the appeal over the past three weeks.

This included donations to a bucket collection in the town centre earlier this month, which raised more than £2,000.

Since the first earthquake, measuring 7.8 on the Richter scale and leaving thousands dead and many more homeless, the town’s Rotarians have raised £5,500 for the Amma Samuha (Community of Mothers) in the area of Baseri, in the district of Dhading.
