The temple, formerly located in Golders Green, held its tenth successive donation session on Sunday 17 November 2013. As the temple is currently located in temporary accommodation at the Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa Complex, Kingsbury, this blood donation session was held in the hall of the Golders Green – Dunstan Road Synagogue.
With a spirit of true interfaith cohesion, for the benefit of those in need, people of the temple and the synagogue, and many others from the locality of Golders Green and Kingsbury, made the selfless act of giving blood.
A total of 103 units of blood were collected during this session, of which 43 were from completely new donors.
This brings the grand total collected by Shree Swaminarayan Mandir to 974 units over the past 5 years.
