Sikh Charity Raises £25,000 for Ealing Hospital Heart Monitor
Members walk over a thousand miles to help the NHS
A Sikh community group have raised more than £25,000 for a new heart-monitoring machine at Ealing Hospital.
Ten people from the Pingalwara Charitable Society (PAC) collectively cycled, ran and walked 1,000 miles over a month in recognition of the National Health Service and its work during the Covid-19 pandemic.
It included PAC’s president Jagraj Singh Sran who walked up to five miles a day after work to meet his individual target of 100 miles.
Mr Sran said: “It’s the least we could do for the NHS, especially in recent months when so many people have been putting their own health on the line to help others. We all have a responsibility to help one another.
“The NHS is always there for us, so we should be there for the NHS.”
The cheque was presented to cardiologists Dr Harmandeep Singh and Professor Jaspal Kooner and will be used to help treat the thousands of people treated for heart conditions at the hospital ever year.
