A charity evening at New Era restaurant raised an amazing £1,280.05 to help create a new centre for Nepalese orphans left without shelter following the devastating earthquakes.

The fund-raiser saw around 40 guests and included a three course dinner and a raffle which on its own raised £335.

The money is going towards buying land for The Surya Children Welfare Service Center in Jawalakhel to enable them to have a dedicated base, after earthquake damage to their former building.

New Era’s co-owners Geeta Gest and Dipendra Khati thanked organiser Sharon Pigram of Coffee Cup Events, the Grantham Business Club and all those who attended the event for their support.
