If you live around the Southampton area and would like to lend a hand with some of our fundraising activities we would be happy to hear from you. We thoroughly recommend helping the people in Rigul, we certainly get a lot of satisfaction. It involves a lot of team work, as well as being a social get together, and lots of fun with various activities.

Please contact Margaret on 023 8046 2926.

We started our fundraising for Rigul and other Tibetans when we heard about the poverty and hardship experienced by the Tibetan people since the Chinese invasion and occupation of their country.  

The nomadic people of Rigul on the high Tibetan plateau live at an altitude of 12,795 feet and existence is marginal in a sparsely vegetated fragile ecosystem and where winters are extremely harsh. Living in a remote area far from any of the supports for life which we take for granted, they lacked basic healthcare, a school, and still have no piped water, electricity, telephone or sanitation.

We have raised money

from car boot sales; sponsored runs; a parachute jump (see Claire in free-fall above!); cake stall and garden cream tea parties; plant sales; dinner parties and ‘bring & buy’ to name but a few!

Yes, we want your old ink cartridges and mobile phones which will then be recycled and so prevent yet more rubbish and landfill and earn money for Rigul Trust poverty relief projects!

Over 50 million ink cartridges per year are thrown away in the UK and end up in land fill sites where they will take over a 1,000 years to decompose.  In the UK alone an estimated 15 million mobile phones are discarded every year and over 100 million are hoarded as they still have a monetary value.
