Wiltshire quake survivor lucky to be alive

A Wiltshire man's telling Heart 'We could hear the children screaming from the children's home' during last week's earthquake.

Tom Greensmith was travelling through Nepal and had just left his hotel in Kathmandu when he and his girlfriend felt the shudders of the earthquake rippling through the country.

He was one of the first British survivors to make it back to the UK safely, and is now staying with family in Bath.

More than 6,500 people have died since the disaster last Saturday (April 25th) and Tom's been sharing with Heart what it felt like as the 7.8 earthquake shattered the poor country's buildings.


Tom's been back in the UK since Wednesday and is now campaigning to get as many people here to send aid to the country to particularly help those trapped in the remote mountainous villages.

He'd like people to donate via earthquakerelief.cglf.org
