THANKYOU To all who attended Roland Alford’s: Across Tibet On Horseback talk in February.  A total of £200! was made.  Half of this has gone to Tibet Society and the other half went to fund stipends for elderly Tibetans in the Lodrik region of Nepal.  These are elderly Tibetans - former freedom fighters who tried to resist the Chinese invasion in the 1950's and 1960's, fled to Mustang in Nepal and have faced great hardships in Nepal from the collapse of the carpet weaving industry they had subscribed to and most recently the withdrawal of another major charity providing stipends. Tibet Relief Fund is looking to cover extra thousands needed for their survival. The funds we raised will help these elderly people. So many thanks!
