Macclesfield Express - - WILDLIFE -

A FUNDRAISER is stag­ing a ex­hi­bi­tion of her pho­tog­ra­phy to help Nepal re­cover from two earth­quakes.

Carly Phipps is rais­ing funds for the Nepal Dis­as­ter Re­lief ap­peal.

She is trav­el­ling to the coun­try in Novem­ber with a char­ity Re­solve In­ter­na­tional, which is help­ing to build a school for or­phaned chil­dren.

It also has a pro­ject run­ning that in­volves build­ing toi­lets and im­prov­ing san­i­ta­tion for peo­ple who live in re­mote ar­eas of Nepal.

Carly is go­ing with the char­ity to doc­u­ment their work.

It was a trip or­gan­ised be­fore the two dev­as­tat­ing earth­quakes in May.

Carly said: “It is now more im­por­tant than ever to help raise funds for the char­ity.”

She is host­ing a fundrais­ing ex­hi­bi­tion at The Snow­goose on Sun­der­land Street.

The open­ing night of the ex­hi­bi­tion called ‘The Way We Live’, will be on Septem­ber 4 at 6.30pm.

There will be live mu­sic from KaTo and Co start­ing at 7.30pm, as well as a hog roast and a raf­fle.

The ex­hi­bi­tion will run for five weeks, with prof­its from the sale of any art­work be­ing do­nated to Nepal Dis­as­ter Re­lief.

The clos­ing night of the event will be on Oc­to­ber 9, with live mu­sic from Sam’s Kitchen and So­phie Stock.

There will also be a sec­ond raf­fle with prizes in­clud­ing gym mem­ber­ships and some­thing from Jimmy Good­win, for­merly of Doves.

The ex­hi­bi­tion will then con­tinue for a fur­ther six weeks at Bolling­ton Arts cen­tre from Oc­to­ber 11, with pri­vate view­ings on Oc­to­ber 25.

The first earth­quake killed rel­a­tives of Hari Ne­u­pane, from Mac­cles­field, who is orig­i­nally from Nepal.

Res­i­dents ral­lied to raise hun­dreds of pounds at a fundraiser at Gurkha Din­ing, on Sa­muel Street, a Nepalese res­tau­rant Hari co-owns.

A sec­ond earth­quake days later poured fresh mis­ery on Nepal.

Chil­dren at Prest­bury Pri­mary School raised £1,000 for Shel­ter­Box, a dis­as­ter re­lief char­ity.
