Have your say

MEMBERS of the Western Wards community action team in Fareham came together to raise money for people affected by the earthquake in Nepal.

The group, which is made up of representatives from local churches and organisations, took part in cake sale which was formally opened by the Mayor Councillor Mike Ford and Mayoress Mrs Ann Ford, pictured.

Also in attendance were Fareham MP Suella Fernandez and former MP Mark Hoban, who both praised the efforts of everyone involved.

With a wide selection of homemade cakes on offer, the sales totalled up to more than £700, which will be donated to the Disaster Emergency Committee.

The committee aids millions of people in Nepal who were affected by the earthquake that struck their country.

A spokesperson from the groups said: ‘We are so grateful to all those who made and bought some delicious offerings.

‘All the money is going to a worthy cause and it great that people made the effort.’

Nepal was hit with an earthquake in April. It measured 7.8 on the Richter scale and killed more than 9,000.
