My friend Nick and myself will be running The Doko Race on June 6th to help raise money for The Gurkha Welfare Trust and every donation will help the cause.

After a turbulent year for a lot of people around the world, helping to provide basic supplies to these loyal people is more needed now than ever.  

Just a small amount will go a long way and will really help the men and woman who work tirelessly within the organisation to provide the much needed aid to these brave Gurkha veterans, their families and their communities. 

Thank you in advance of any donations as this cause truly means a lot to us.  

More information about The Gurkha Welfare Trust: The Gurkhas are soldiers from Nepal who are recruited into the British Army and have been loyally fighting for the British crown for over 200 years. Roughly 19,000 Gurkha soldiers have died during the many wars they've fought during Britains side. Many thousands more have been wounded and more still have had to return to a life of hardship in Nepal. 

Established in 1969, The Gurkha Welfare Trust exists to ensure that Gurkha veterans, their widows and their wider communities are able to live with dignity. 

The Trust achieves this primarily through the provision of financial, medical and community aid across Nepal.
