About Love Nepal in the UK

Love Nepal is a charity based in and around Blackpool and Lytham St Annes on the Fylde coast of Lancashire. The charity was originally named DCWC, the name given to the charity in Nepal and stands for Development of Children and Women Centre. The charity was established in 2003 with its goals to help the poor women and children of Nepal in the form of providing educational and health facilities. Since that time the charity has gone onto build a hospital and 15 schools in various rural areas of Nepal, as well as many other different projects.

The charity currently has five trustees, Gary Collier, James Wilson, Patrick Moran, Sue Hamilton and Rob Brehmer who are all strictly voluntary, each of whom have travelled to Nepal and worked on our rural projects. More information can be found on our Trustees page.

We will also be forever grateful to those who have served us as trustees in the past and without whom we would not have achieved all we did.

We have also been very fortunate to have had the services of three great Patrons. Long time Coronation Street favourite Sean Wilson who played Martin Platt. Sean has now forged a career now with his cheese business and his very successful Northern Cookbook series. The late Joe Longthorne needs no introduction. After many decades in the music industry Joe recently was awarded the OBE for his work raising funds for charity. And also Andy Weber, worldly renown amongst the Buddhist fraternity for his Thankga teaching. Andy gives classes in many countries throughout the year and is recognised for his knowledge of Buddhist Iconography. **For more information regarding our patrons go to our Patrons page**
