Fantastic News from The Leprosy Mission Just to let everyone who was involved in the Pancake Pizzaz know that the” Heal Nepal” appeal raised almost £1.7million throughout the UK as a whole, £45,000 of that in Scotland. With matched funding from the UK Government, this means the organisation has around £3.4million towards the repair and extension of the hospital at Anandaban. Once again, very well done to all those who assisted in raising our contribution.
