Womens Aid Leicester - "Save the City Refuge" Oadby Gurdwara Collection


For over 35 years, Women's Aid have provided refuge accommodation in Leicester for victims of domestic abuse and their families. The City refuge is a safe haven for those who have escaped violence and abuse in their homes.

They are no longer funded to provide this support and require assistance to keep the refuge open.

In orders to support the refuge, on Friday 22nd March, the Sikh community in conjunction with Oadby Gurdwara organised a collection event at Oadby Gurdwara.  The event was a huge success, with an unprecedented number of donations.  The lovely ladies from Women's Aid Leicestershire Limited (WALL) were very grateful for all the kind donations. These will make their way too many valuable refuges on Monday morning.
A big thank you too Leicester Kaurageous for primarily organising the event, Harps Sanghera from Willsons Solicitors, Bill Mato and Leamington Spa sevadars from Dharam Seva Recs who travelled in the snow to deliver their donations and supported us all week! Thank you to the Oadby Sikh Parents Group (OSPG) for helping to organise and supporting on the day. Thank you to the many sevadars who supported with smiles and love . Leicester Sikhs for continued unity and support alongside the many Leicestershire Sikh Alliance reps.
