TIC cycles for Nepal
The staff of TIC all joined together this August for a charity bike ride to raise money for The British School of Kathmandu Nepal Earthquake Appeal.
For some of the TIC team, it was their first time on a bike in many years, but everyone completed the 13.5 km course – the furthest many had ever ridden! The challenge raised £971 towards the appeal which is helping local communities and schools affected by the earthquake that occurred in April and killed over 6,000 people, injured 14,000, and affected 8 million. Over 1.7 million children were in the worst hit areas.
TIC has been supporting the British School of Kathmandu Nepal Earthquake Appeal since it was established at the time of the disaster, raising almost £4,000 towards the cause. Emergency supplies including food, and tarpaulins for shelters for families and to create temporary structures to allow education to continue, have been provided as a result of the money raised by the British School of Kathmandu. All supplies have been delivered to the communities by school staff. For some of these communities it was the first support they had received after the earthquake.
