Elvis boogies for Bangladesh

by John Humphries (Nov 2006)

Yes, Elvis, in the person of councillor Richard Stevens (pictured) of Bayeux Court, got down and belted out the old favourites in the Old Town two weeks ago. The event was Boogie for Bangladesh and the funds raised were for providing wells for Bangladesh. Richard has been actively involved in the project for about ten years and has personally been out to Bangladesh five times to oversee the installation of the wells. Each one costs about £400 and he still needs funds: 01424 781026.

A hunk of burning love for the people of Bangladesh.

COMMENT

From Richard & Jackie Stevens (Dec 2006)

Dear Sir, first of all, thank you so much, for the front-page coverage of the Boogie For Bangladesh concert recently held at The Famous Lillie Langtry’s. With donations etc, we raised approximately £375 which considering that there was no admission charge, was a pretty good result. All the entertainers gave freely of their time and talent and are anxious, not to say keen, to do it all again! The cost of a Deep-Tube Well is round about £550 and our intention was always to raise enough money to fund another 4 wells at least by the time of our next planned visit to Bangladesh in November 2007. Richard & Jackie Stevens, Bayeux Court, Bohemia Road.
