Preston’s Sikh community is once again proving its kindness knows no bounds in the run up to Christmas.Advertisement
A shoebox appeal is being run to help the city’s homeless as well as feeding them.
Under the Fish Market canopy in the city’s new box market the Sikh Seva Society will be serving up hot vegetarian food, known as langar, and handing out shoeboxes full of goodies and essential items.
They will go to the city’s most vulnerable in the run up to Christmas.
Four city businesses are acting as drop-off points for those who want to donate items for the shoeboxes. These are:
The Butty Stop, Eldon Street
Realign, Watery Lane
Millers Taxis, Brook Street
Moss Art, Lower Lane Longridge
The Sikh community have teamed up with Lynsey Battle who is running the shoebox campaign. Anyone who wants information about items needed for donation can contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
