TWO religious groups have come together to help aid vulnerable people in the community.
The North Herts Sikhs have joined forces with Stotfold King’s Baptist Church’s The NEED Project.
Essentially, the two groups provide food parcels to help people in North Herts and Central Beds who need support.
The project has links with other churches, schools and organisations, who all support various aspects of the project.
The project is headed by Gordon Hamilton, from the baptist church.

Gurdeep Singh, from the North Herts Sikhs, said: “It’s a great partnership and we are delighted to be working with Gordon and his team.
“We ask our congregation – made up of Sikhs across Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire – for voluntary donations, from which a team of individuals source, purchase and deliver the specific food items for onward distribution.”

And both groups hope the project will continue to grow.
Gordon said: “It’s great to have Gurdeep and his team working with the NEED project.
“Our two faiths are so aligned and it’s so positive to see everyone coming together to support those that need it the most.”
