Dear Member & Friend,


I hope you are having a great Summer. It has been a while since I wrote to you.


Last year we were able to send only £7,125 to the hospital for the needy patients of the surrounding area.

This year we hope to send at least £10,000 if possible, to the Sevashram.


Our efforts raise only a small amount of the expenditure that the hospital incurs on a daily basis. So far, we have sent only £4000 to the hospital this year. The floods in Uttranchal have caused major devastation in the area and the Sevashram has been particularly affected with the large volume of people suffering due to this natural disaster. We need to do more to reach our target for this year.


On 13th April, RBBA organised a Dinner Dance at the Slough Hockey Club. It was a great success with over 200 guests attending. They donated £1234.75 to our Charity.


On 21st April, Bratin Roy ran the London Marathon again this year to raise funds for us. He did very well and has so far raised £1388; we are waiting for a similar amount to come to us from his employers, Google.


Our next fundraising effort is planned for Saturday 21st September at Drayton Manor High School, Hanwell to celebrate our 21st year as a Charity. A leaflet with details is enclosed with this.


It would be great to see you there. If for any reason you can’t come – please support us in our fundraising efforts by sending a donation (cheques payable to Kankhal Medical Aid).


Please come, bring your friends, and support your charity.
