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."
