In late November we were delighted to welcome Youdon Aukatsang, director of our Empowering the Vision project in India, for a short visit to the UK. Whilst she was over here it was great she was able to meet supporters at our thank you reception that opened our photographic archive exhibition. Following this both she and Tsering Passang, our sponsorship co-ordinator, headed north to visit Prudhoe School near Hexham in Northumberland to talk at the school’s assembly and then hold workshops with some of the students from Year 9. Prudhoe School has long been involved with Tibet Relief Fund and regularly holds fundraising and awareness raising events.
Our thanks go to Yvonne Clark, the school’s head of drama, for her fantastic support and organising Youdon’s visit at quite short notice! Youdon and Tsering’s vist was featured in the local paper, Hexham Courant.
