On Friday 17th July 2020, I met with Hetvi Parekh from Sewa Day to deliver activity packs to William Lilley Infant and Nursery School and the Haven Community Centre Foodbank.
Sewa Day’s motto is ‘acts of kindness and serving the community, without any expectation in return’ and in Nottingham they have been working from the Hindu Temple Community Centre to support our local community throughout this pandemic. Their projects include delivering to food banks, running a ‘Childrens Book Appeal’ and, more recently, creating and delivering activity packs to local schools and foodbanks.
It was great to hear from Hetvi about the incredible work Sewa Day have done to help people in Broxtowe, and across Nottingham, and I am really looking forward to seeing the results of their ‘Spread Some Joy’ campaign. This is a chance for children to create drawings and artwork over the summer holidays which will be sent to local care homes, bringing a smile to residents’ faces. Please see the photo below for more information on how to take part.
Thank you to Hetvi, Naresh and the rest of the local Sewa Day team for continuing to make a positive difference to our community at such a difficult time. If you would like to hear more about what they do, or get involved, please contact Hetvi by email using email@example.com.
