Everything in the garden’s lovely

Mitzvah Day got the vote of Harrow East MP Bob Blackman on Sunday as he joined Jews and Hindus in a project at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore.

    Mitzvah Day got the vote of Harrow East MP Bob Blackman on Sunday as he joined Jews and Hindus in a project at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore.

    Members of Stanmore and Canons Park Synagogue and the Shree Swaminarayan Temple organised the clear up and replanting in the hospital’s rehabilitation gardens.

    The project also united MItzvah Day with Sewa Day, its Hindu counterpart.

    “It was truly rewarding to see volunteers from two local faith communities come together to help clear the gardens for our incredible Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital,” Mr Blackman said.

    Mitzvah Day executive director Dan Rickman, another volunteer, reported: “The gardens were in a desperate state when we arrived but are now completely transformed. As we were leaving, visitors and patients were already coming outside to njoy the new scenery.”
