Residents at Steven’s Court, Winnersh enjoyed a Nepali evening last Thursday. They were treated to Nepali food, took part in a quiz about Nepal (many were surprised by how much they knew!) and wore saris whilst dancing to Nepali music. The aim of the event was to raise awareness of the plight of women in Nepal and to raise funds for WWR.
WWR invites you to a Nepali evening to be held at the
Sultan Balti Palace
Saturday June 27th
This will be the first event of its kind that WWR has hosted and will be a chance for us to thank all our supporters who have given so generously over the past four years. We will be also be celebrating our new ‘official charity status’!
Tickets cost £22.50 per person and include a three course buffet, a glass of wine and entertainment as well as helping raise valuable funds for WWR.
To purchase tickets, please send a cheque made payable to ‘Women Without Roofs’ to WWR, 10 Comet Avenue, Upavon, Pewsey, SN9 6BT by June 16th
We look forward to seeing you
There is ample free parking near the Sultan Balti Palace in any of the car parks in Wokingham town centre – if you require directions please let us know and we will send them to you together with your tickets.
The train station is only 5-10 minutes walk away and is on the Reading to Waterloo – London line. If you require overnight accommodation then we would be happy to recommend a hotel, please let us know.
The evening is open to absolutely anyone so please feel free to bring friends along. Tables are for 6 people so if you can fill a table that would be great.
The dress code is casual, however if you have any Nepali clothes we’d love for you to wear them – if you’d like to try wearing a sari (I’m afraid women only!) then please let us know and we will see what we can do.
All of the money raised on the night will go to Nepal to support needy women and their families.
Thanks for your support
Renee has arrived safely in Kathmandu, Nepal and has so far seen Bidya and Shova who are the pastor and his wife that run the Cyrene course for us. The course teaches women to sew, read and write which hopefully leads to them being able to run a small business from home. She has shown the ladies from the course a purse that we hope they can copy; we will be able to sell them back here in the UK to raise funds.
