Fund Raising- Diabetes Research.
Sarbat Da Bhalla –Sikh Nari Manch raise funds for diabetes research
Volunteers from the Birmingham-based Sikh Nari Manch UK (SNM), raised £1,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) by participating in a five mile sponsored walk in Sutton Park, last month.
It’s not the first time, SNM have raised funds for mainstream good causes. Previously, BBC Children In Need, Acorns Hospice, several special schools in Birmingham and orphanages in India have benefited from the endeavours of
the mainly female, volunteers.
“Serving humanity in the spirit of the Sikh belief, Sarbat Da Bhalla is one of the principles of Sikh Nari Manch.” said Bibi Gurdev Kaur, chairperson of SNM. “Not only did we raise funds for a good cause, which affects many South Asian
people, we were a presence for the rest of the community, to see that the Sikhs are an integrated part of British society, who participate and contribute to the mainstream.”
A cheque was presented to Hannah Gripton from JRDF at the SNM’s Annual General Meeting last week, held at their community centre, Northside Welcome Centre – Mata Tripta House in Erdington, Birmingham. She commented:
“Diabetes affects the quality of life of millions of people across the world. JDRF is committed to finding a cure for diabetes and we appreciate all the support given by the SNM and the wider Sikh community.”
