RESEARCH ANGELS: BAPS members present their donation
A GENEROUS donation from worshipers at a no- rth London temple to Im- perial College London will be used to fund research into prostate cancer.
In total, £15,000 was raised for the NHS Trust from donors at the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Man- dir in Neasden.
Dr Stephen Mangar, consultant oncologist and honorary senior lecturer at Imperial College got the cheque on Saturday (25).
He said: “What stimulates me to strive for constant improvement through research is for those who have suffered before to leave a legacy to those suffering now and in the future. This kind gift of money will be used to fund research in prostate cancer.
“What is remarkable about this evening is that the money has come from a community from whom at least one of their mem- bers has been under my care and has undergone this journey. Despite his suffering, his resolve to help raise gifts of money is truly amazing.”
Dr Sejal Saglani, a lead volunteer for BAPS charities and herself a student in respiratory medicine at Imperial College London said the charity branch of the temple was committed to helping alleviate suffering for people affected by serious health conditions.
