******* Supporting the community *******
At the SGSSH we regularly support local organisations by providing essential food and supplies to those in need. Any support we can provide is helping those less fortunate.
Every two weeks we have an outreach programme in conjunction with SWAT where hot food is provided to those in need. This involves hot meals being made, packed and transported to Luton (Market Square), where volunteers then distribute the hot meals plus a packed bag of snacks to those in need of a hot meal. Other essential items like toiletries, hats/gloves, sleeping bags are also available. Hot drinks (tea/coffee/hot chocolate) are also distributed on request.
Periodically throughout the years we also collect dried food supplies and toiletries for “The Need Project” – based on Stotfold. This involves the collection of supplies and distribution to ‘The Need Project” office where it is then packed and distributed to those less fortunate. This occasionally also involves furniture and other adhoc items where families have a need for specific items.
We use the Gurdwara email distribution to send out posters when such initiatives are going on.
We have also teamed up with two local shelters where we have provided hot food on specific evenings.
If you wish to get involved in any of the above or future initiatives please drop us an email to email@example.com.

*** Khalsa Roots ***
Khalsa Roots runs workshops for children of all ages on the first Saturday of each month, from 3pm to 5.30pm. Please check the sgssh.org programme diary for dates and join the emailing list to keep updated. We are a parent-led group, and create practical activities and lessons for the children to encourage learning about our Guru’s and our Sikh Roots. We have a range of activities including cooking lessons, horse riding, theme park trips, theatre, yoga, cup-stacking, clay modelling, arts and craft…to mention a few. The children have great fun with new friends and new opportunities to develop. Each year we participate in Eco-Sikh Day to inspire the children to look after the environment, be kind to nature and we pot plants to take home and nurture. Our lessons are linked to Sikh stories and teachings and we use these examples to encourage learning. Workshops always end with great Langar and treats.
