Parents of students at Deer Park School, Cirencester, who are planning a World Challenge trek across Nepal to help repair a school there and help pupils in need, are to stage a bucket collection in the town's Bishops Walk shopping centre on March 1st.

Each of the 21 youngsters is having to raise £2,200 for the trip in April and the Bishops Walk organisation has pledged to provide the fund raising facility.

Le Beaujolais, the French restaurant in Castle Street, Cirencester, is staging a celebrity dinner on March 7th with Tweedy the Clown, Rob Rees, the Cotswold chef and singer Lucy Rees all performing during the evening.Joint owner Kiean Glynn said:" It promises to be a truly magical evening with profits going to the trekkers".

David Allberry, property manager for Bishops Walk, said:"We are delighted to help the youngsters try and achieve their goal. It is a brilliant task they have set themselves and we hope the any customers visit Bishops Walk on March 1st will give generously.

"Our involvement with Cirencester College, Deer Park School and some of the primary schools in recent months has been of great interest to us in that it has allowed the traders to become a growing part of the community", he added.

Tickets for the trek dinner can be booked with Kiean Glynn on 01285 644440.
