Sikh Donation 2015


The VANCOUVER ISLAND SIKH CULTURAL SOCIETY has donated $3,000 to the Auxiliary to Cowichan District Hospital.

"We have been considering where this donation should go," Auxiliary President Claire Wessan said, "It would be appropriate to recognize not just this donation but the continued support of the Sikh community. We received $4,500 last year and once a year the ladies from the Sikh community come together and make samosas, etc. that are given to us to sell at the hospital, a very popular initiative. This year we were sold out in 10 minutes and made $1,000. They have volunteered to do this twice a year now."
