Don't Forget The Gurkhas

In some news from afar, Sundar Khanal reports on former Mayor of Reading, Cllr Peter Beard, who, as founder of The Forgotten Gurkha Charity, has travelled to Kathmandu as part of the charity's campaign 'to orient and assist' the settlement transition of Gurkhas.

Watch him speak from 1:48 - 2:35

You can find out more about the charity by visiting it's website here: The Forgotten British Gurkha
