At 3pm we then will move to Leamington Spa Mandir where we will be volunteering to help with the event they have that day. This includes playing with children there, working behind the stalls there and taking part with the daily activities. Finally several of us will be walking around Leamington Spa in the evening and giving food to the homeless. Homeless is a huge problem in Leamington so we will be bringing joy to many people
City Hindus Network have their own Diwali Zone at Diwali in Trafalgar Square on Sunday 16th October. This also happens to be Sewa Day. We will be using this opportunity to teach the public about Diwali and how to be a good Hindu. Diwali celebrates the triumphant victory of good over evil – and the glory of light over darkness, a beam of hope over despair. We aim to spread joy and make the sessions fun and interactive. We will also be collecting coats to help people in need.
For more information and to get involved please email email@example.com.
We believe #EveryDayIsSewaDay so although this falls on Sewa day we are organising a number of Sewa events for the year. Last year we had homeless feedings and organised a day trip for the children from LCT charity. This year we will be having homeless feedings, organising day trips for people in need, community and environmental projects. Our upcoming projects include a homeless feeding for 500 people on Thursday 13th October and a large scale coat collection to be distributed at Christmas time.
As part of youth initiative for the temple we want to encourage new young members to understand and follow the concept of sewa.

NHSF Roehampton and NHSF LSBU have collaborated to on a project named “Embrace” to bring joy to poorly children in either Great Ormond Street Hospital, or hospitals around London, by extending the hand of friendship through the creation of friendship bracelets to show the children our care and support.

We hold our community Navratri celebration at Alperton Community School for 11-days and this is where SEWA group sets up their table table requesting people to donate some non-perishable food for FOOD BANK project. Being Navratri, people always kneen to help and donate. Each day donation is held at community hall @ 20A ROSEMEAD AVENUE, WEMBLEY, MIDDX, HA9 7EE.
The plan will be to meet at the University Campus to give out the Sewa Day T-shirts, and split everyone up to let them know which area they need to cover! We can have some lockers booked out at the University where people can come to leave the items they have collected, or alternatively come and give them to one of the Hindu Society committee members to take.
The items will then be delivered to the Exeter food donation bank, which can be found in some local supermarkets.
