Following the recent terrible earthquake disaster in Nepal, Wisbech residents have been organising events to help the victims.

The April earthquake – the worst natural disaster to hit the region in more than 80 years – killed more than 8,000 people, left more than 16,000 injured and hundreds of thousands homeless after entire villages were flattened. On Thursday a coffee morning was held at El Molino, in North Brink, Wisbech.

The event was organised by Mrs Hilary Finlay and friends and £300 was raised.

It attracted about 40 people and was supported by various local churches.

On Monday – following the talk by Rowan Williams, the former Archbishop of Canterbury and present Chairman of Christian Aid – a collection will be taken for the earthquake victims.
