Whitley CDA is grateful to all our partners. We have had support from a large number of people and organisations, not only from within our community but from places like Slough too. We have a long list of people and groups that need to be thanked. We would like to take a moment to publicly thank the diverse range of people and organisations that have supported us. Whitley CDA is a non-political, non-sectarian charity and we aim to help everyone within our designated area of need. We do not discriminate by race, religion, colour or creed. You can read our constitution hereWe know that we can do better, we always strive to do better and we will aim to make sure we continue to listen to the community and do our best to make sure everyone’s voices are heard and have an opportunity to influence the work we do.
For now, we need to thank:
Guru Maneyo Granth Gurdwara who have been providing us with fresh meals to add to our food parcels on a daily basis.
We have received support from the local Muslim centre, Jamme Masjid Reading on Alexandra Road Reading.
Khalsa Aid an international NGO with the aim to provide humanitarian aid. The organisation is based upon the Sikh principle of “Recognise the whole human race as one”.
Sewa International is a ‘not-for-profit’ organization inspired by the noble tradition of service before self.
Tutu’s Ethiopian Table, a local restaurant that specialises in providing food that celebrates genuine flavours of Ethiopian food.
We’d also like to thank Fidget and Bob, Clay’s Hyderabadi Kitchen and Turkish Mangal.
All of these partners are exemplars in our community showing what can be achieved when we all pull together. Whitley is forever grateful that we are a multicultural society and together we are #TheBeatingHeartOfWhitley
The other day on BBC news Guru Maneyo Granth Gurdwara were featured, they are one of the largest Sikh temples or Gurdwaras in the UK and they have responded to the lockdown by reinventing itself as an emergency food operation, delivering thousands of meals a day to NHS staff and those most in need.
Every day we are doing our best to ensure food reaches people who are elderly and/or vulnerable and desperately in need. Anything you can spare to help us help them will be greatly appreciated. You can find out how to help by clicking here.
