Despite Joanna Lumley's campaign, many ex-Gurkhas and their widows will not be eligible, or are too old and frail, to come to the UK, and the Gurkha Welfare Trust will continue to support them with pensions, medical assistance etc. We still need your help to raise the money needed to do this.
If you are interested in helping us raise funds for the Gurkha Welfare Trust in any way, please contact us on 01889 577721, or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
You can meet us at the Gamekeepers' Fair, Catton Park, Nr. Alrewas, Staffordshire on 11/12th April, 2015
