On Saturday 25 April, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal, affecting the lives of over five million people and leaving many homeless.
Most of the country’s major cities, including the capital Kathmandu, were badly damaged and rural areas near the epicenter were completely cut off.
We support charities and aid relief as a result of natural disasters and realise that many of you may want to make a donation too. This is why we opened an account to allow you to donate to the Nepal Earthquake Appeal directly from your Skipton account.
As a result of this, we are delighted to say that we have now issued a cheque to the Oxfam Nepal Earthquake Appeal for a staggering £5,391.16.
Thank you to everyone that has contributed and helped with the appeal.
