Great work by community volunteers on Sunday collecting litter at Overton Park and the surrounding streets. The volunteering was inspired by a national volunteer charity called Sewa Day . The volunteers are from all faiths, abilities and backgrounds based on the ethos of Oneness and the world being one family. Their work aims to spread joy, relieve hardship and help the environment.
Sewa Day's Spread Some Joy campaign has seen over 1000 children submit pictures which have been sent to over 300 care-homes and dozens of hospitals on a weekly basis. They have even been used by Age UK and have appeared on supermarket walls too.
River Clean up
Cardiff Balgokulam liaised with Keep Wales Tidy to help clean the coast and spent the afternoon at Ogmore-by-Sea. With large refuse sacks they collected litter, plastic, cans and bottles. A total of 12 bin bags were collected by the Sewa team. "Sowing the seeds of SEWA in children was a gratifying experience to parents. Children demonstrated the motto - Be the change."
