Friendship event aims to strengthen ties between Nepal and Scotland
CLIMBING enthusiasts from the North-east who have scaled Mount Everest are among those invited to an event celebrating ties between Nepal and Scotland. Aberdeen’s award-winning 8848 Restaurant is hosting the friendship event at its Union Street premises in partnership with the Organisation of Nepalese Culture and Welfare. Nepal’s ambassador to the UK Dr Durga Bahadur Subedi and Aberdeen Lord Provost Barney Crockett will attend the event.
The restaurant is named after Everest’s highest peak. More than 60 guests will have the opportunity to find out more about Nepal and build relationships.
The restaurant’s director Krish Bhetwal said: “We also want this to be an opportunity for people to find out about Nepal, the culture and the country as a whole.
“In addition, we wanted to thank climbers who have supported the local economy in Nepal.
“We are honoured the Nepal ambassador for the UK is making the effort to visit the North-east. We’re hoping the event plays its own small part in strengthening links.” There will be speeches during the event, which is being held on Sunday.
