Nepalese ambassador attends Tang Ting Twinning Association dinner
A SELL-OUT charity dinner received a major boost with the presence of the Nepalese ambassador.
HE Dr Suresh Chandra Chalise and his wife, Milan Adhikary, turned up at the Tang Ting Twinning Association’s (TTTA) third anniversary celebrations held at the Officer’s Mess at Carver Barracks. The charity twins the villages of Debden and Wimbish with Tang Ting in Nepal.
The evening proved to be a huge success with the magnificent sum of �10,500 raised - money which will enable work to start on the extension to the children’s day care centre in the Nepalese village.
Also in attendance on the evening were Lt Col Bell, Lt Col Barrett and Major Burridge representing 101 and 33 Royal Engineers, and chairman of the TTTA, Moray Bayliss.
Capt Gau Gurung, welfare officer for the barracks, headed the attendance for the Nepalese community while Kell Ryan, co-founder of Ryan Airways, entertained the guests with a speech.
