We are delighted to announce that Skills & Care Team won Civic Award 2016 – Community Award for outstanding work in raising fund for Nepal Earthquake. We were able to collect 20 tons of donations and over £20,000 for Nepal Earthquake victims.
The fourth Civic Awards 2016, held at Woolwich Town Hall on Friday 18 March, honours deserving people who have made outstanding contributions to life in the borough and we are very proud to be one of the organisation to receive the award. The award was received by Skills & Care Team, which included, Devendra Shrestha, Shimmy Pun, Anita KC, Ranjana KC, Pushpa Singh, Sunita Adhikari, Sonia Thapa and Jay Thapa.
