Events – 2020

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

Covid-19

Clearly all events in the short term are on hold as we wait to see what happens regarding the Covid-19 situation. It may be that the Vitality London 10000 will not go ahead in late May, but we hope that some of the fairs may still happen. The reality is that none of us knows how this situation is going to play out, and we will try to update people with NLT events that can occur, in due course.

26th January 2020 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 – it does not have to be on World Leprosy Day. 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 in 2019, and about £1500 was raised for NLT’s work.

25th May 2020 is the Vitality London 10000 run

Nepal Leprosy Trust had 4 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 6 runners in the 2020 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 register (with our help), 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. Last year we raised about £1750 for NLT’s work.

NLT will be attending several village fairs during May (Richmond Fair), June (Ham Fair) and July (St Margaret’s Fair), so keep an eye out for updates .

 

NLT’s Sponsored Walk happens in September – date to be confirmed

NLT’s Sponsored Walks always take place in beautiful parks or other countryside, 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 be put on our website in due course, 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.

In September or October 2020 we will be doing a presentation at Horley Baptist Church – morning and evening. 

This is being held by friends at Horley Baptist who accompanied the 2019 Envisioning Trip to Nepal and saw the work in Nepal for themselves, and were very blessed and challenged by the whole experience. Do join us if you can to learn more about NLT’s work. If you would like to come, please contact us by telephone: 020 8940 1200 or by email: info@nlt.org.uk.
