Events – 2019

Find out what is going on, join in and support NLT though these events.

27th January 2019 is “World Leprosy Day”.

World Leprosy Day is observed internationally every year on the last Sunday of January, to increase public awareness of leprosy. This day was chosen in commemoration of the death of Mahatma Gandhi, the leader of India who had great sympathy for the poor and understood the importance of helping people with leprosy, who are mostly amongst the very poorest. Please consider holding a coffee morning for NLT to raise some funds for our work in Nepal. We can provide leaflets, powerpoint presentations, pictures, handicrafts for sale, etc, to support an event that you put on. Contact us by email: info@nlt.org.uk or telephone: 0208 940 1200. PS: we had 4 coffee mornings organised, and about £1500 was raised for NLT’s work. Thanks to all those who participated.

27th May 2019 is the Vitality London 10000 run

Nepal Leprosy Trust had 5 runners in last year’s Vitality run, which is held in London and starts and finishes near Buckingham Palace. It is well organised and attracts nearly 25,000 runners including some famous ones like Sir Mo Farah. we hope to have 10 runners in this year’s run and would be thrilled if you would like to join our team. NLT will cover the entry costs, all you need to do is turn up and run along with encouraging  your friends to sponsor you and raise some much needed funds for NLT. If you would like to run for NLT, please email us as soon as you can at info@nlt.org.uk, or telephone us on 0208 940 1200. PS: We almost had 6 runners but in the event four made it off the start line with one of the other two having registration difficulties, and the other having an injury. This year we raised about £1750 for NLT’s work.

14th September 2019 is NLT’s Sponsored Walk

The next NLT Sponsored Walk takes place in beautiful Black Park and Langley in Buckinghamshire near Pinewood Studios, and you are warmly invited to join us in support of the work of NLT in Nepal. The walks have become an enjoyable way of raising funds for our work, and are accessible to those who are not able to run marathons or join the Vitality Runs that we engage with. Apart from your own packed lunch, we generally take great scones and jam and cream for an indulgent cream tea picnic in the afternoon, safe in the knowledge that we are walking it all off during the walk. If you can, find some sponsors and help us to raise some funds for leprosy work in Nepal, but don’t worry if you can’t, come anyway and join us for a day of fun and conversation in beautiful surroundings, on 14th September, in Black Park. More details will follow, but the walks usually start at about 10.30am and finish around 4.30pm. Contact us by email on info@nlt.org.uk or telephone on 020 8940 1200, and follow this website for updates.
