A temple will be holding a blood donation drive this month in the run up to its official opening.

The Shree Swaminarayan Mandir Kingsbury is holding its first blood donation session at its new premises in Kingsbury Road, on Sunday April 13.

The session is just one of many charity events organised by members of the temple in the run up its opening in August.

Last month the charity raised thousands with members taking part in the Kingsbury Sports Relief mile.
