International Projects

In 2016, our club adopted a project to build Polytunnels for the cultivation of food in Kerala India at the location of the Childrens Homes in Kerala State ('CHIKS').  This charity has its roots in Farnham. The project was completed in June 2017. To see the details of the project, click following file:

Our club raised over £3000 in May 2015 towards relief of the earthquake in Nepal. An amount of £1500 was sent in  September 2016 for a special pipeline project to be supervised by the RC of the Himalayan Gurkhas. See the report on this project at the following link:
