Bring Back The Smile To Nepal, the Perthshire based charity, used the first anniversary of last years devastating earthquake to raise funds and to help raise the profile of their rebuilding campaign in Nepal.

The charity held a fundraising bagpack in the Aberfeldy Co-op Store on Saturday and collected a whooping £405, towards their ongoing relief projects in Nepal.

“What an amazing and really generous effort from everyone”, said Anna Gurung ( founder of Bring Back The Smile To Nepal ), “Thank you so much. It is the first anniversary of the earthquake, so it was an especially poignant time for all of us. However to receive so many good wishes and so much interest in our work, really raised all our spirits.”

Volunteers from the charity were also on hand to discuss their project to rebuild an entire village, and to answer questions about Anna’s recent trip to Nepal.

“It was a really positive day”, Anna added, “We are more determined than ever to carry on the good work we have started.”
