RUNNING FOR NEPAL
Sarah Wellard is running the Hackney half marathon next month to raise money for Grandparents Plus and the Green Tara Trust. Grandparents Plus provides advice and support to family members raising vulnerable children because their parents can’t look after them because of problems like drug or alcohol abuse or because parents have died or are seriously ill or disabled. Green Tara Trust helps women and children in rural Nepal access life saving health care. One year after the earthquake people are still living in very poor conditions and many face the prospect of another monsoon under tin roofs or even tarpaulin! Support her to support our Nepal team as they launch their 2 year post quake programmes.
WHO NEEDS PRESENTS!
In March, 2016, Jillian Ireland, NHS midwife in Poole, made her 50th birthday celebrations a fundraising event for Green Tara Trust. The party in Dorset was themed ‘a touch of tartan’ to Jilly’s country of birth. The party was a great success, raising over £250 for our charity! Jilly will be going to Nepal in May as part of the THET-funded project to improve mental health training for community maternity health workers in Nawalparasi. Jilly will be volunteering on a joint project supported in the field by Green Tara Nepal. The photos were taken by Karen Bale.
Many happy returns and thank you, Jilly!
