When our Mum died a couple of years ago, we thought we'd do something a little different to the standard bench "in memory of...". Through some friends my father arranged for donations to go to the "Friendship Clinic" in Nepal, a charity set up to help people in remote parts of Nepal by providing medical assistance and, importantly wells to provide clean drinking water.
And so, Well Number FCN15-TW42-10, officially registered as "Kit Hiscocks" is now supplying fresh water in a village in Nepal. It's certainly different, and very certainly worthwhile. More information on the project can be found via their website which is Friendship Clinic

Love them or hate them? I've got a pal who's a train freak - I'm not convinced he stands on the end of railway station platforms with a notebook and a flask (you know who you are!), but he is train mad. I find them interesting occasionally, but I just hate travelling on the things. I peridocally go to London in the course of my work, and I hate the 2 hour journey (if you're lucky) with a vengeance. They are always either hot/cold/late (never early), filthy, full of people using mobiles with that awful nokia ring tone...bah, humbug.
