Nirali has prepared a very informative presentation which she will present together with Hansaben who will translate into Gujarati.

Hemantbhai has provided us with a list of items that are required and collections will begin from next week until Easter Sunday.

This is a really wonderful spiritual activity that I hope the whole centre will get behind.

Email from Narendrabhai.

 

Dear All Sai Ram 

The first delivery took place last week on Monday in Bridgewater at a local church where the salvation army have made a base. It was very much welcomed by all the local volunteers. We have now closed the collection of further items, if you still have some items then please could you get these to the Region 4 hub in Leicester. Rohitbhai will be able to coordinate any delivery. So a big thank you to you all for participating in this first ever collection for the UK.  

The next step or phase is to gather a list of names from the region who could volunteer to help  in a few weeks with the clear up. Kiranbhai and the team are in discussion at the moment with the authorities on what would help the most. Could you please announce in the centre/group for volunteers who are willing to help. When the details come in we will ask again if they can actually make it on the dates but the first thought is the willingness to help. I would appreciate it if you could let Rohitbhai know within the next week or so.  

Have a good rest of the week. 

With Love and Light

Narendra
