BASINGSTOKE Hindu Society is holding its annual ‘Sewa Day’ charity cricket tournament this weekend.

Both individuals and established teams are welcome to head down to take part in the event, which will see players compete and all funds raised go to a variety of charitable causes, including Limington House, a school for children with special educational needs in Basingstoke.

Sewa Day is an international day of volunteering, where groups across the world come together to support one another and good causes.

The event is also an opportunity for people to share in celebrating Rakhsha Bhandhan, a hindu festival celebrating the pious relationship between brothers and sisters.

The Basingstoke event, which is running on Sunday, August 22 from 8am to 5pm at May’s Bounty, will also include a home-cooked Indian lunch and will have a variety of family-friendly entertainment activities on offer, including a bouncy castle.

The Mayor of Basingstoke, Cllr Onnalee Cubitt is also attending to show her support.
