Festival mission to bring people together
Award-winning charity raised £40,00 for Nepal
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
