Tribute to the Gurkhas

At a Ladies Night in Studley, on the Worcestershire/Warwickshire border, members of Lodge of Hospitality, No. 8325, presented a cheque for £1,000 to Major Rob Cross, who is a representative of the Gurkha Welfare Trust

In addition to a welfare pension, the trust provides a range of support services to Gurkha veterans, including an extensive medical programme in Nepal, offering free primary healthcare and funded treatment at national hospitals. Mobile teams also visit housebound pensioners in their isolated homes and provide medication that can be expensive in Nepal.
