Our First Envisioning Trip!

Saturday will see a group of seven of us gather at Heathrow Airport! This will be our first ‘Envisioning Trip’ to Nepal,  so we are all very excited and a little bit nervous. Many people over the years have expressed a desire to see our work in action but didn’t feel able to go on their own. It was this that brought into being the idea of having ‘Envisioning Trips’. The group is going out for 2 weeks. The first two days will be spent in Kathmandu where we will visit our workshops and me...

NLT Sponsored Walk 2019

NLT supporters gathered near Pinewood Studios at Langley Park and Black Park for the 2019 NLT Sponsored Walk to help raise funds for the work of NLT. It was a lovely day with lots of sunshine and beautiful scenery. The two adjacent parks are separated by the A412, and have lakes, a mixture of woodland, gardens, heathland and grassy open space. This area is tucked in the corner made by the M25 and M40, and it is hard to believe that there is such busy traffic so near to these wide open country sp...

No more Fairs!

All the fairs over and done with now! It is so enjoyable to to be out there talking to people about what we do and stand for. People are genuinely interested and also very surprised that Leprosy still exists! Our little team, Mike, Mildred and myself attract all sorts of people to have a chat with. Although I do think that having a few chairs scattered around the tent also helps! Who doesn't want to have a sit down when you've been walking round the stalls all day! Best sellers of the ...

NLT Sponsored Walk – Update

The NLT 2019 Sponsored Walk on Saturday 14th September will start at 10:30am from the Langley Park car park, in Billet Lane, Ivor, SL0 0LS. This is a smaller car park, so it should not be too hard to find each other at the start and there are some nice tea rooms and toilets to make things comfortable. Bring some loose change in case there is a small charge for the car park - not sure about the cost, if any. The first part of the walk will loop around Langley park, taking in the Arboritum. The...
