Two music events in Carbrooke have raised more than £2,700 to help orphans in Nepal.

Terry Mahoney, from Carbrooke, is a non-executive director of the Humanitarian Concern Centre, an orphanage near Kathmandu which is home to about 30 children aged between four and 18-years-old.

He has supported the centre for about nine years and on September 5 hosted two fundraising events at Carbrooke Village Hall - a tea dance with music from the 1930s and 1940s, and a Motown evening with a Nepalese curry supper.

Mr Mahoney said he was “absolutely delighted” with how the events went. He said about 200 people in total came to the two events and that more than £2,700 was raised.

Anybody wanting to donate money to the orphanage should email tmahoney@gotadsl.co.uk
