Sikh Union Coventry


The annual Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji charity walk was attend by about seventy participants. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the charity walk in Coventry which has been organised by Sikh union since 1985. Many thousands of pounds have been raised since the start for several charities. From small beginnings the charity walk has grown from strength to strength and so much so that the charity work has taken us to Kenya for the Water bore Project and India for the Eye Camps. We carry on supporting several local charities, this year we supported the Children Emergency Department at University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire (UHCW) and also the Coventry Lord Mayor's charity which is supporting Parkinson UK.

The charity walk started from Guru Nanak Prakash gurdwara and the ribbon cutting ceremony was performed by the Lord Mayor Michael Hammon who congratulated us on the ongoing charity we do locally, nationally and internationally. The Gurdwaras and Mandirs enroute were very accommodating and served everybody with hot and cold drinks, lots of pakoras, lovely gelebes, and chocolates just to mention a few. We like to thank everyone who contributed towards making this event, yet again a major success. Sikh Union Club gives recognition to all the individuals who worked so hard to make this charity walk a success and convey our thanks to all. We also acknowledge and appreciate the efforts of the fund raising participants and their sponsors.

The walk is organised by Sikh Union Club in conjunction with Coventry City Council, West Midlands Police and the Council of Sikh Gurdwaras in Coventry.

We have donated £1500 to the Children Emergency Department at University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire (UHCW) see photos. Arrangements are ongoing to distribute further funds to the nominated charities.
