Sikh Sanjog meet The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge at Holyrood Palace

What an honour and certainly a remembered event to join our history books! We all couldn’t believe the news given by our Director Trishna at the staff meeting. The Royals wanted to meet us and hear all about our work, support and response to the pandemic in the last 18 months.

The Duke and Duchess rolled out chapattis with our social enterprise Punjabi junction team and heard all about the hot food provence, spoke with service users of the intimate support they have received, got artsy with members from our Youth Group and enjoyed traditional folks music from our Health and Wellbeing Group.

More coverage of the visit here…

“We have chosen to release the video on the 20th anniversary of the commemoration of September 11th to pay our respects to those who have died as a result of terrorism or in political and religious related conflicts and in the hope that through programmes such as the 2021 Peace Walk we can show through religious communities coming together a route to lasting peace.”
