The Pen Warehouse supports Nepal relief

Employees at The Pen Warehouse raised over £1,350 for a charity helping people affected by the Nepal earthquake.

The company, based in Aldershot in Hampshire, has a workforce reflecting the diversity of the local community so has many colleagues from Nepalese families. The money will support Maiti Nepal, an established charity that works exclusively with children and women and is currently sheltering about 200 children, mostly victims of the earthquake. They urgently need help to buy basic necessities such as tents, food, clothing and bottled water.

The Pen Warehouse also donated £500 to the Disaster Emergency Committee (DEC) which works with 13 major charities to help countries stricken by disasters. Sunita Gurung, who helped co-ordinate the collection at The Pen Warehouse, said: “It’s very distressing to see the suffering in Nepal. We wanted to do something to help those who have been so badly affected by the earthquake. Colleagues and our MD, Neil Cleere, have been very generous and for that, we will be forever grateful.”
