The Nepal 2015 trip departs soon for Kathmandu and money has been steadily raised throughout this school year for the many projects that our students and staff are aiming to work on whilst there this Easter.
The annual trip is led by Mr Keith Brooks and the funds have been boosted by a surprise donation external to the school from his church St Andrew’s Community Church, in Dronfield Woodhouse, who recently presented him with a cheque of £500 that has been raised by local people. Thank you to all those who contributed.
Keith said: ' This donation came completely out of the blue and I am very grateful indeed to everyone who was involved in raising the money'.
This will be used to assist with the costs of a pastor from a church in Kathmandu which is already supported by Birkdale, to pay for him to reach people living in remote communities in the mountainous areas close to Nepal.
