Photos of 9th SIRC Charity Golf Tournament

Before we get into the photos, our tournament got a mention in the Himalayan Times – woohoo! Here are a few shots from the golf tourney on Saturday

Royal Nepal Golf Club is right by the airport, look out the city side when you are flying in and you'll see the expanse of green.  Most don't see it, they are too busy looking at the Himalayas!

Each winner got a trophy and a prize.  Pretty nice trophies eh?  Fashioned in glass to mirror the 'spine' and the SIRC logo

It was a lot of hard work on the day, as golf tournaments always are, but worth it in the end.  We sat back and enjoyed a few cold ones once the golfers had left. The SIRC website will be updated with photos etc, later today.

About Kate Coffey

After 25+ years in the investment management industry, I packed in my job and spent 2014 living and working in Nepal and Bangladesh, and visited some other places in between. It took me on a journey I did not expect, had me fall in love with Nepal and it's people, and become inspired at the work of Spinal Injury Rehabilitation Centre (SIRC) located 2 hours east of Kathmandu in the Sanga foothills. Since 2014, I have continued my warm relationship with SIRC and worked closely with my friends there in the aftermath of the 2015 earthquakes to date. This blog initially started out as a travelogue of sorts to keep friends and family worldwide updated while I was off on my travels in 2014. Since then it has morphed into a life story of the many places I have lived and worked and of the wonderful people I have met along the way. I hope you enjoy.
