A fundraiser is being held on Saturday to help raise enough money to send team to Nepal to help rebuild after earthquake.

A group of businesses have come together to send a team of builders to Nepal following the earthquake in April.

The Help Rebuild Nepal project has been organised by Yarde Orchard Café, near Torrington.

Simeon Day, team leader and owner of Yarde Orchard, said: "We are putting together a team of skilled tradesmen to travel to the remote village of Simigaon to help those who have lost loved ones, homes, livelihoods and their spiritual places of worship."

The project needs funds to get the team there, as well as paying local people to feed and accommodate them.

"We are an independent group of individuals from a Devon community who want to directly help another community in dire need," added Simeon.

Yarde Orchard is running a fundraising raffle where North Devon businesses have put up a range of prizes, worth over £1,000, to help the project raise funds.

The café will also be holding a fundraising evening on Saturday at Yarde Orchard Café with authentic Nepalese curry and a presentation by experienced trekker Mike Ritson who was in Nepal at the time of the earthquake.
