Photo exhibition to help Nepal
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.
