On behalf of all the Trustees and supporters we would like to wish our Patron Joe Longthorne all the very best and a speedy recovery from throat cancer after it was publicly announced earlier on today.

Joe has supported DCWC and other charities close to his heart for a number of years and we wish him all the very best.

Akkka, Clara, Dr Ramu and Steve
 
Though the hospital was opened in 2010, only the ground floor had been completed due to lack of funds. Now over 3 years later the upper floor has now been completed thanks to the incredible kindness of Dr Clara Macnamee. Clara personally donated the funding herself to enable the hopital building to be completed. Clara travelled to Nepal in November along with Steve Gross to oversee the completion and to officially open the upper floor. We are eternally grateful to Clara for her extraordinary generosity and to all our friends in the San Francisco Bay area, who have worked so hard to help DCWC Nepal to make the Hospital a great facility that will hopefully be of great benefit to the community for a long time to come.

For a long while now we have been indebted to our friends in the USA for their work in helping to fund the DCWC Nepal community Hospital in Rajbash. Please take a look at the links below to see their latest work and pass on to any potential interested parties. Without the invaluable work our American friends are undertaking, the future of the hospital would be a very unsecure one. Thanks again to all from here at DCWC Nepal in the UK.

  On 26th September the donated ambulance finally arrived at the Hospital. The ambulance has been very kindly donated by Tata motors in India. It is going to make a massive difference to the way we are able to treat patients in the area. The roads around the hospital are treacherous especially in and around monsoon time. This will enable us to get patients to the hospital quicker and to get the more serious cases to Kathmandu.

  A big thank you to Joe Longthorne Friendship Club  
     
 
 

On Sunday 8th July the Joe Longthorne Friendship club did a 5 mile sponsored walk along Blackpool promenade to raise funds for DCWC Nepal. The walk raised in excess of £2000. Joe gave a 'live' interview from his Blackpool home with Eric Hall on radio Essex as the walk was underway. He joined the walkers at the finish line and then proceeded to walk a further mile with a few fans to the De Lovely Hotel who had laid on afternoon tea, a big thank you to Steve & Leigh. Andy Mudd & his family & George King (currently on tour with Joe) also took part. Joe wants to make this an annual event.
From all at DCWC Nepal we would like to say a big thank you to all those involved.

  Congratulations Joe on your MBE  
     
 
 
Singer and charity fundraiser Joe Longthorne, from East Yorkshire, said being awarded the MBE is "an unexpected honour". Longthorne, who has recovered from leukaemia and a bone marrow transplant, added: "I am extremely glad that I'm still here to receive it!"The 57-year-old from Hull, has been given the award for charity work that has seen him raise money for organisations including the Variety Club of Great Britain, Cancer Research UK and DCWC (Development of Children and Women Centre) Nepal. Longthorne, who lives in Blackpool, Lancashire, said: "To say I am delighted would be an understatement. It's all the more dear to me as it comes in this very special Jubilee year." Speaking of the moment he found out he was to be made an MBE, Longthorne said: "I was in the car on the way back from a gig when my partner James rang to tell me. "It was such a wonderful feeling. It's just knock-out." In his career, spanning over 40 years, Longthorne has performed to millions of people around the world and is currently taking part in a 60-date tour of the UK. He has also sung at the Royal Variety Show four times. He found fame on LWT programme Search for a Star in 1981 and went on to present his own television programme, The Joe Longthorne Show. After being diagnosed with leukaemia, he received a bone marrow transplant in 2006 and is now in good health."I've been very lucky to get through it," said Longthorne. "Ever since then, I've been trying to give something back."
