This fascinating lecture was held in Rugby in October 2017 is now being repeated in Birmingham. The lecturer is Dr Priya Atwal (PhD in History at the University of Oxford), who speaks about her research on Sikh History. For the Rugby event all ticket sales went to ‘Unite in Virtue’ – a charitable organisation which helps those in need and holds a weekly food bank in Birmingham. In doing so we raised ~£600 to help sustain the Food Banks.
The Sikh community are organising a similar event with the same lecturer (Dr Priya Atwal) who will give a talk/presentation about Women in the Sikh Empire in the 19th and 20th centuries. It will take place in Birmingham at the Ruddock Performing Arts Centre. Tickets, (£5:00) can be purchased on-line. The goal of this fundraiser is to achieve £1000 to go direct to ‘Unite in Virtue’ in order to start two new Food Banks, one in Coventry and a new one in Leicester. The money will help volunteers buy food, an urn for hot drinks, tables, paper/polystyrene cups, plastic cutlery, plastic containers etc on a weekly/monthly basis.
Please publicise and advertise this event to help this event flourish and succeed to its maximum potential. More details can be found on the Rugby Interfaith Forum website here
