The Society was formed in January 2017 by a small group of Sewadars (Selfless Service Volunteers).

Their mission is to help those in need by serving Langar – free vegetarian meals and refreshments – regardless of religion, gender, age or status.

The group also distribute warm clothing at their events, held every Saturday evening and on the last Sunday of each month under the canopy at Preston Markets.
