Preston Sikh Sewa Society is aiming to raise £1,000 to help in the fight against coronavirus.Advertisement
The money raised will be split between the local NHS and Khalsa Aid, a non-profit organisation that is distributing aid to vulnerable people.
The Society is well known in Preston for feeding and clothing the city’s homeless through its weekly Langar Sewa – an event that has had to be suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak.
A spokesperson for Preston Sikh Sewa Society said: “Unfortunately we have had to cancel our Langar Sewa due to the spread of the coronavirus, and importantly for everyone’s wellbeing.
“As a contingency and after seeing on the news that the NHS is short supplied, we have set up this fundraiser to start helping our local NHS. Khalsa Aid are serving Langar to the vulnerable people and supporting those in difficult times.
“We will continue our Preston Langar Sewa when it is deemed safe to do so by the government and local authorities.”
