A SIP­SON-based char­ity hosted a fes­ti­val of ‘One­ness’ in Hayes.

The Sant Ni­rankari Mis­sion, a move­ment which has raised more than £40,000 for the Nepalese Dis­as­ter, or­gan­ised the One­ness Fes­ti­val at Lit­tle Har­ling­ton play­ing fields.

The Bri­tish Army came out to play the One­ness team and an Amer­sham char­ity at cricket, un­der tem­per­a­tures of up to 26 de­grees.

Mayor of Hilling­don, Cllr Ge­orge Cooper opened the event, which was con­cluded with a speech from the Gen­eral Sec­re­tary of the Sant Ni­rankai Mis­sion UK, Mr Upashak.

The Sant Ni­rankari Mis­sion UK re­ceived the Queen’s award for volunteering. Harvin­der Handa, from the Sant Ni­rankari, said: “The award will no doubt en­cour­age con­tin­ued ser­vice to mankind through the many char­i­ta­ble ac­tiv­i­ties that the Mis­sion is in­volved with as well as the con­tin­u­a­tion of sim­i­lar com­mu­nity events across the coun­try.”

The event in­cluded live acts, in­flat­a­bles for chil­dren, food, games and a rodeo bull. For more de­tails on the char­ity’s world­wide ac­tiv­i­ties visit www.ni­rankari.org
