Param Singh from the City Sikhs Network said "People were very generous in giving food and toiletries and I was so pleased when store managers of high street supermarkets went into their store room and came back out with bundles of food!"
The two St Mungo's shelters were extremely delighted with receiving their donations and the City Hindu and City Sikhs Networks hope to do similar sewa projects in the near future.
Sewa is the ancient Indian concept of selfless service for the betterment of society and National Sewa Day is a one day event providing an opportunity for people from all walks of life to join social action initiatives in their local area.
City Sikhs Network was launched in October 2010 in the UK and is a vibrant group of young Sikh professionals from a variety of industries and professions who are passionate about creating positive change within society and inspiring people to be the best they can be.
