    Fashion show to boost Sikh group's funds


    FASHIONING funds isn't easy for charities these days.

    But a fashion show and a grant from an Edinburgh-based funding body look set to ease a "difficult" financial situation for Leith charity group Sikh Sanjog.

    The organisation, which supports women and their families from the Sikh and black and ethnic communities, has been awarded £6000 by the Lloyds TSB Foundation for Scotland.

    The money will go towards the salary of an administrator whose job will be to help manage the group's finances.

    The charity hopes a new venture being staged by one of its two youth groups will further boost funds.

    A group of 12 Sikh girls, aged from 12 to 18, are to stage a fashion show - The Punjabi Pataka - at South Leith Parish Church on Saturday as part of their work for a Duke of Edinburgh's Award.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
