Charity fundraising by Kutch Madhapar Community (UK)
Kutch Madhapar Community is a organization with members whose roots are from Madhapar – one of the largest villages in Kutch.
Many families immigrated to Africa in the middle of the century and then moved in the 60s and 70s to the UK to settle down for a better life.
The Madhapar community in the UK was formed in 1968 by the early settlers in the London area.
The committee organises many events to bring the community together.
The events relate to the theme of culture, social, education and sports.
The events that take place every year are: Bhajan, Children Christmas Party, Sports tournaments, Dinner & Dance, Mehfil Night, Health Seminars, and Annual Function.
The community also raises money for charity.
In the past the Madhapar community has given funds to improve the facilities in Madhapar – such as parks, schools, lakes and old people homes. Madhapar community has donated money towards some of the major disasters such as earthquakes, floods, droughts and tsunami.
Recently the community has focused on the charities in the UK. In 2011 we organised Charity Dinner and Dance for Children In Need. The business men and women from the Kutch community gave such generously and with their help total of £11,166 were collected.
Kutch Madhapar Community (UK) has come a long way since its beginning in 1968.
Community runs a sports club and cultural workshops.
The organisation is slowly adapting to the new generation so that the community can continue in the future. We are proud to be part of this community
