On August 15th 2015, in conjunction with the CDMF (Charlie Derrick Music Foundation) and Shiva Charity, Ryan Inglis went to Nepal after raising £8,502.58 by walking over 500 miles through the North coast of Spain.
Half of that money went towards building and supplying instruments for a music department. The other half was used to pay for temporary shelters for those who lost their homes in the Earthquake that devastated Nepal.
In total, just over 50 homes were built in Rabi Opi village to help those most affected and we bought around 20 acoustic guitars, 15 harmonicas, 6 bansuris, 10 whistle flutes, 2 madal, 1 zimbai, 1 tambourine, 1 trumpet, 1 clarinet, 10 small keyboards, 2 large keyboards, 2 PA speakers, 3 microphones, 2 mic stands + the decorating and furniture for the music room.
