Handing over Alan Hutchison Library to Gatare School Children

Alan Hutchison in London was one of the founding members of UKFG in 2005. Even before that Alan has been helping poor communities in Sri Lanka through the Harrow Trust. Immediately after the Tsunami tragedy,  Alan flew to Sri Lanka to offer immediate  help to many victims. He also managed to get  Johnson Matthey (London )  to donate 40 scholarships to poor children through UKFG. He funded the rebuilding of   the house belong to Lalitha and Sumathipala in Galle .

Since the tsunami tragedy Alan has been sponsoring five UKFG children throughout their education. On 2nd August 2011, Devsiri , Ruvini and their three children handed over the Alan Hutchison school library to children at Rural Gatare school in Kamburupitiya. It  was  built with Alan’s generous donation of £6000. Not only the children and parents but the whole village turned  up to see the opening ceremony and handing over.   Children sang songs and performed cultural dances. Devsiri and Ruvini’s two boys Dinum and Deshan thoroughly entertained the children and guests with their singing of English and Sinhala songs
