A fundraising evening of Indian music will take part at a school in Queen’s Park in aid of a charity in Kenton.

Ramesh Bhanderi has organised the bhajan event at Queens Park Community School in Aylestone Avenue, to raise funds for St Luke’s Hospice.

Mr Bhanderi, who has been volunteering on St Luke’s board of Trustees since 2011, held an identical evening last year which was attended by more than 300 people and raised £3,500.

He said: “I first experienced the work of a hospice when a friend of mine received his end of life care at Pembridge Palliative Care Unit.

“I was moved by the care that was provided to my friend and equally embarrassed by my lack of understanding of this invaluable community care.

“Since I was elected as a trustee of St Luke’s in 2011 I have found this to be immensely rewarding as I have had the opportunity to attend various events on behalf of the hospice and meet people from diverse backgrounds who all work for the betterment of the community at large.”

Performers on the night include by Pritee Varsani and Friends and Alan Watts, St Luke’s sound therapist, will also be performing a duet with Pritee.
