Working with Volunteer Services in Nepal has been a transforming experience for Lauren MacGregor. She will never forget the smiles of the children she helped to care for in the Shining Stars Children’s Home, and is moved by the thought of how grateful they are for the little they have. She lived with a host family and shared their traditional dishes such as Daal Bhaat.
We are now realising the full value of Lauren’s help in distributing E2D, and before that ET, for several years in Seascale, Drigg and Holmrook while attending St Benedicts School. The visit to Nepal filled the gap between successfully taking A levels and starting her course at Manchester University.
While in Nepal she made a great many friends and visited Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur. She remembers with amazement the Monkey Temple and found the Holistic Yoga centre in Thamel “out of this world.”
