BAPS Swaminarayan Mandir volunteers join Great British Spring Clean 2024

Over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend, 216 volunteers from 13 BAPS Swaminarayan Mandirs and centres across the UK came out onto the streets to clean up and rejuvenate their local neighbourhoods as part of the Great British Spring Clean.

Dubbed the UK’s biggest mass-action environmental campaign, BAPS volunteers across the country collected 138 bags of litter as part of an effort to help refresh and significantly improve their surrounding environment.

Ambrish Limbachia, a National Community Outreach volunteer for BAPS, noted: “His Holiness Mahant Swami Maharaj, the global spiritual leader of the BAPS Hindu fellowship and the inspirer of Neasden Temple, teaches us to respect and care for the environment and to serve our local communities as a part of our social responsibility.

“Seeing so many volunteers come together for such a worthy cause is a testimony of the community spirit between the temple and its neighbours. We would also like to congratulate Keep Britain Tidy for its tremendous work over the past 70 years and look forward to supporting their community projects in the future.”

The annual event is organised by Keep Britain Tidy, a leading independent environmental charity that works to inspire, educate and enable everyone in the country to value the environment on their doorstep.
