Water "fun day"
Saturday 09 July 2011, 14:00-18:00

Richard Backwell's charity, the Okhle Village Trust, is running a sponsored "water-carrying" day to raise money for the Nepalese village of Okhle.

The aim will be for people to try carrying loads of water roughly the distance that the Nepalese villagers have to do every day - with the significant difference that we will not be carrying it on the steep gradients they have to manage daily.

Cream teas, and lots more fun as well.

STOP PRESS - the event made a magnificent £1250. Great fun was had by all.
