MEMBERS of Huddersfield’s Sikh community have raised £1,300 to help earthquake victims.
People attending Sunday prayers at the Guru Nanak temple in Springwood were asked to dig deep to help the thousands who were left devastated by the earthquake in Haiti in January.
Their donations were collected and presented to a representative from UK-based charity Khalsa Aid, which is working to reach the hardest hit areas of the Caribbean island.
Inderpal Randhawa, general secretary of the Sikh temple, praised the community’s efforts.
He said: “The Sikh community has always helped the victims of many disasters around the world.
“Thousands of families have been left homeless and up to 200,000 people lost their lives in Haiti.”
