HARROW HINDU CELEBRATION

We were excited to be asked to provide transport for our local Hindu Centre in Splott who offer support to older people in our community.  We do love a celebration and jumped at the chance to be involved.

The group had been invited to attend a national gathering of Hindu community centre members for an event celebrating the second anniversary of a well know prayer group.

The event was held in Harrow, Middlesex and over 300 people arrived on the day from community centres all over the UK.

It was a long day for our volunteer Hitesh but he was well looked after and enjoyed joining the passengers in their motorway picnic.
