WALLINGTON Memorial lectures for Nepalese medical charity

After Peter's untimely death outside his home in Wales (he had been a Himalayan plant Association member), I visited his wife to select a small number of his numerous, high quality slides to combine with mine to undertake a series of Peter Wallington Memorial Lectures in aid of the Britain-Nepal Medical Trust (where I would donate either my normal fee or in lieu of a fee, a collection was made afterwards). You can learn more about Peter within the article reproduced below; he cared deeply about the people of Eastern Nepal. I am sure he would be dismayed that it was the immoral conduct of a Nepalese reporter for the BBC which has forced Chris to terminate his fund-raising activities.... But Navin Singh Khadka is well-paid and is attaches more importance to his posturing and sucking-up to the government than the poor of Nepal.  Such people make a big deal of 'blaming' foreigners for Nepal's ills, when it is people like him who damage Nepal.
