The Gurkha Memorial Fund is a Registered Charity number 1137393.
Although the original aim of the Folkestone Gurkha Memorial Fund has been achieved by the erection of the Gurkha Memorial Statue in the Garden of Remembrance, Sandgate Road, Folkestone, the fund continues to:
- maintain the permanent memorial to educate the public in the role of the Gurkhas in Folkestone;
- run remembrance services to acknowledge their role played in the community;
- provide support for the Gurkha community in Folkestone & East Kent, and;
- fund development and humanitarian work in Nepal in recognition of our gratitude for their contribution to the UK.
Chair: Dhan Gurung
Dhan Gurung is believed to be the first ex-Gurkha to be elected to a UK Council. Dhan served as a Folkestone Town Councillor to Cheriton Ward between May 2007 and May 2011.
