Post Event Update

1st May 2019

On a sunny afternoon in May, One Kind Act hosted an event to raise awareness of head injury.  

Balwinder Kapila, an astonishingly brave, articulate and positive woman lost her vibrant, sports-loving 15 year old son unexpectedly to a stroke some years ago. In his memory she self-published a cook book, "A Pinch of Spice" with traditional, home-made recipes passed down through generations from our great grandmothers and beyond. 

In typical One Kind Act style, the afternoon was full of fun, laughter, an abundance of food and drink, in the sprawling country home of trustee Mona Bhogal. There was a chance to peruse and buy beautiful traditional Indian jewellery. This was interspersed with poignancy and heartache as Balwinder related the story of why and how the book came into being. The book, which is a testament to how something constructive and positive can emerge from tragedy sold dozens of copies on the day.

£905 was raised on the day which will go a long way in improving the lives of children affected by stroke. It will be granted to the Indian Head Injury Foundation - a charity OKA support that is very close to our hearts (see further details under CAUSES) - to purchase a multi-activities workstation used for upper extremities exercises required by these children. The workstation will be named in memory of Balwinder's son, Aman Kapila.
