Bhajan night held in Kingsbury for Nepal

Tuesday 12th May 2015 10:08 EDT

Following the devastating earthquake which took place in Nepal, on 25th April 2015, a group of charities collectively came together and co-ordinate various events to raise funds to provide the basic necessities for the impoverished and injured. These charities (MZ & KZ Shah Foundation, Shree Swaminarayan Temple, Dharma Bhakti Manor, Shishukunj, Lions Club of Nepal and Hunnarshala) organised a Bhajan Night, held at Zaverchand Memorial Hall in Kingsbury, on 9th May 2015.

The singers enthralled and mesmerised the enthusiastic crowd with their songs. The Shiv Shakti Bhajan Mandal rendered Kathiawadi devotional Gujarati Bhajans.

The fundraising Bhajan evening raised £62,000 in 4 hours, which calculates to £258 per minute, which showed exceptional devotion to the worthy cause. All the money raised will be donated to local organisations on the ground in Nepal.

These charity groups encourages everyone to donate some money. Even £1 is worth 150 Nepali Rupees, which is enough to feed one person for an entire day.
