Kind-hearted Droitwich backpacker to travel to Nepal to help local children

Harry Leach 15th Mar, 2020

A DROITWICH backpacker will travel to Nepal later this year to help local school children recover from the effects of the 2015 Gorkha earthquake.

Representing youth-led development scheme Restless Development, Laura Sadler, aged 22, will guide youngsters on making important decisions about their futures.

She will deliver workshops, advice them how to set up their own businesses and touch on personal matters too.

“I am so honoured to be working with the people of Nepal.

“I will be teaching girls under the age of 18 about their rights into early marriage and also pregnancies.

“These subjects are not only important to me, but important to the people I will be helping.”

Laura will immerse herself in new cultures by staying with a host family for 12 weeks.

The cost of her flights, accommodation, travel and training will be covered by Restless Development.

But first she needs to raise a minimum of £800 for charity International Citizen Service which runs the scheme, before she departs in June.

To do this, the Chateau Impney worker has decided to hold a fundraiser at the hotel on April 17.

Starting at 7pm, there will be a disco, buffet and a raffle.

Those wishing to sleep at the hotel will be given a 25 per cent discount on overnight stays.

Tickets cost £10 and can be bought by ringing the Chateau Impney on 01905 774411.
