Congratulations to everyone involved on the Poppadom Pictures Nepalese fundraising event on March 3rd. Overall £750 was raised to support the reconstruction of the Kali Devi secondary school in Naubise and a cheque was presented to the Oxfordshire Nepalese Community on Sunday evening. The fundraising event took place at the Everest Restaurant on Howard Street and started with a screening of Runaway Railway (Children’s Film Foundation) followed by curry and screening of award winning film Gyalmu’s House – by Asmita Shrish and Gavin Carver.
