The Lotus Trust, the welfare arm of Bhaktivedanta Manor Hare Krishna Temple raised thousands for local charities, including the Great Ormond Street Hospital during a Charity Walk on Sunday 18th July. This year’s Walk was themed ‘walking with the cows’ as there were over fifty walkers dressed as cows! Walkers included a grandmother aged 93 and Himani Patel, aged 9, who were dressed in fury black and white costumes!

Bob Blackman, MP for Harrow East and the Mayor of Harrow Cllr Asad Omar opened the event.

“I congratulate everyone who has taken part in the Walk- – raising money for the Great Ormond Street Hospital which is a great cause,” said Bob Blackman MP. “The event also promoted the proper treatment of cows which are an important aspect of our society”.

“This is an annual event which benefits local charities. This year we supported the Great Ormond Street Hospital,” explained Sheila Chauhan, the organiser of the Walk.

The Walk was also to promote a new milk quality marked as ‘Ahimsa’. Those milk products with the Ahimsa mark will represent milk which comes from cows which will kept free from slaughter.

Most farms in the UK will slaughter their cows for human or domestic animal consumption after about five years of their milking life. However, the Ahimsa campaign is looking to collaborate with farms to take care of their cows until they die naturally. A pilot is soon to be launched where people can purchase Ahimsa milk through a collection scheme.

“This premium milk will offer consumers the chance to avoid buying from an industry which is based around slaughter and suffering, and instead buy from a fresh new alternative” said Mr Sanjay Tanna, Director of the Lotus Trust.

The Lotus Trust is an educational, relief and development agency seeking to transform lives and improve the environment both in the UK and overseas.
