    Leicestershire Sikh's inundated with clothes donations after appeal

    By Leicester Mercury

    Organisers of a clothes appeal for three charities say they have been inundated with donations from generous people and groups.

    The Leicestershire Sikh Alliance and KAURageous Leicester launched the Gurpurab Clothes Drive 2013 to celebrate the Gurpurab (birth date) of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Jee, the first Guru of the Sikh faith.

    The clothes will be donated to Action Homeless, Rainbows hospice and the Unique Home for Girls, which helps abandoned girls in the Punjab.

    A spokesman for the Leicestershire Sikh Alliance said: "The response has been tremendous. We had Loughborough MP Nicky Morgan and Police Commissioner Sir Clive Loader drop in and donate.

    "We have had such a wonderful response that we have had to find extra space to accommodate all the clothes that have been donated."

    Surinderpal Singh Rai, general secretary of Guru Tegh Bahadur Gurdwara, in East Park Road, Leicester, said: "The first Sikh Guru was a social reformer and spiritual guide. He blessed Sikhs with key principles such as a belief in one God, equality, selfless service, earning an honest living, sharing and caring for humanity."

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!
