Redbridge Sikhs offer amazing response to cancer appeal

Two Sikh congregations have showed a united front by registering 500 donors and raising thousands of pounds to increase bone marrow donors in the borough last week.

The chance of finding a matching donor within the British Asian community is far smaller than if you were from a Caucasian background, due to lower population figures.

The two Sikh temples in Redbridge - Gurdwara Karamsar in High Road, Ilford, and Gurdwara Singh Sabha in High Road, Seven Kings, held an event, on behalf of Delete Blood Cancer, to register blood donors and raise money for the cause.

Mankamal Singh, a committee member at the Singh Sabha Gurdwara, said: I was definitely amazed by the response but the temple was busy because it was the Sikh festival of Vaisakhi. The mind set of the festival is to help people.

Harpreet Lall attended the two-day festival on the Monday.

Her six-year-old son Milan Singh Lall was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia in January after being in remission for three years.

Aged just three Milan was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.

Mrs Lall, a teacher assistant from Gidea Park, Romford, has had to leave her job to care for her son.

She said: There are not many donors amongst Asians as a whole - I think there is only 3 per cent in the whole world on the national and international register.

But Mrs Lall, whose family helped drive the cancer awareness campaign, is still trying to find a confirmed donor for her son.

She added: We do not know if one of those 700 donors will help us in the future.

Mrs Lall admitted she was very surprised £7,000 was donated to Delete Blood Cancer.

We had people coming into the temple and pulling up their sleeves and saying where do we give blood.

If anyone still wants to register as a potential donor to help someone with Leukaemia, they can do so by visiting deletebloodcancer.org.uk

    • Is this the same book? : https://archive.org/details/cunninghamshisto00cunnuoft
    • why is deep sidhu being vaunted as the one who climbed and placed the flag when we saw two different individuals put two different flags up , one elder gursikh and a young lad with a kesari parna? who is this guy his face gives me the creeps ... Police were given anything goes instructions but didn't expect that shooting an unarmed guy in the head whilst he drove by would result in people pushing back against it. it is also clear over 11 police ID guys sabotaged tractors smashed windscreens and windows and also did the bus damage they were were caught and handed in to police comissioner . Many others got away.
    • Yeah, the Indian flag was not touched in any sort of way. They put the Nishan Sahib on a pole in front of the Fort and on some domes. Now, we have the Indian media trying to say it was a Khalistani flag like these dimwits never seen a Nishan Sahib towering in  gurdwaras across the world. Furthermore, these Indian nationalists are showing their true colors all on Twitter!  
    • 1. Can you share the source of this reading? So we can all get some more context and verify the validity of this reading material please?   2. Raaj isn't really preached in the teaching of the Gurus. If so, I'm sure the 10 Guru's would've clearly made this apparent in their teachings and would have accomplished this objective themselves.    Sri Guru Granth Sahib - Ang: 534 (Guru Arjan Dev Ji): Raaj Na Chahou Mukat Na Chahou Man Preet Charan Kamalare. (I do not seek power and I do not seek liberation. My mind is in love with your lotus feet)   Sri Dasam Granth Sahib - Ang: 57 (Bachitar Naatak):   Ham Ih Kaaj Jagat Mo Aae. Dharam Heth Gurdev Patthai. (I have set foot on this Earth for this one reason; to propogate righteousness)   Jahaan Tahaan Tum Dharam Bithaaro. DushT Dokheean Pakarr Pachharro. (The Lord has asked me to spread Dharam and vanquish tyrants and evil-minded individuals)   I could reference countless other tuk's from Gurbaani but i'm sure these two suffice.   Akali Baba Phoola Singh Ji was walking in the steps of the teachings of the Gurus; on a mission to eliminate the enemy; in this case being the British who tried ever so hard to eliminate our teachings by performing disgusting acts such as but not limited to: Creating the SGPC Spreading propaganda of the Khalsa Issuing 'shoot on-sight' orders to kill Singhs Spreading propaganda on our scriptures Sending in paid Sikhs to spread nonsence and create divisions Polluting the Khandeh Di Pahul maryada by introducing other cults to participate Removing the Nihang Singhs from the Akaal Bunga Sahib aka Akaal Takhat Sahib and therefore the whole Jathedaari system that has been in place since the time of the Gurus.
