In June 2009, Lesley and David Jebson hosted a 2 day event for Tilden Project Nepal at their home in Rempstone, near Loughborough. Trustee Anthony Revell designed and built a range of garden sculpture exhibits which were displayed throughout their garden, orchard and adjoining field.
We had Nepalese crafts, plants and homemade jam on sale. There were ploughman’s lunches, hot dogs, homemade cakes etc. on sale in the refreshment area and, of course, a raffle. Amongst a range of prizes, one lucky winner took home a piece of garden sculpture, another won a weekend in Filey.
We are grateful to the many people who turned out to see the show and also to those who came to help. There are not sufficient words to convey our gratitude to David and Lesley who worked tirelessly to put on this fundraiser for us. Thanks to their efforts we raised £2,500 for our work in Aruchour.
