A Hindu centre will host an evening appeal to help those stranded in Nepal.

Prayers and devotional songs will be offered on Thursday, April 30, when the International Siddhashram Shakti Centre holds an evening to reflect on the earthquake in Nepal.

At least 3,000 people are known to have died in the earthquake, which hit Nepal on Saturday, with more than 6,000 injured and 200 already rescued from the area around Mount Everest.

Held at Premier House, in Canning Road, Harrow from 7pm, people are invited to join the Hindu community to pray for those stranded and offer their donations to the appeal.
