With close connections to a village near the epicentre of the Nepal earthquake, the Rotary Club of Clitheroe has organised an emergency street collection to support two of the charities involved in the disaster relief.

Club President David Evans said: “We have been actively supporting a Rotary project alongside Oswaldtwistle Rotary Club, to bring water to a school situated in one of the worst affected areas, Maikot. Until basic human needs are met, the rebuilding work cannot start, so we are keen to offer whatever help is needed.”

The collection will take place in Clitheroe town centre this Saturday, May 2nd.
