Grand Unveiling For Randhir

Today we are delighted to join TSB to unveil their giant billboard honouring our Pride of Birmingham TSB Community Partner winner Randhir Singh Heer.

Created by the Graffiti Kings the artwork will honour the amazing work that Randhir does through his Midland Langar Seva Society which offers an open kitchen to "all and everyone" in need of food every night of the week. Rooted in 500-year-old Sikh traditions of offering open kitchens at temples for anyone of any background, the charity's teams of volunteers distribute hot food, treats and clothes to the community in Walsall, as well as Birmingham, Wolverhampton, Coventry and Leicester.

A team of volunteers serve around 5,000 meals a week to the needy in 15 towns and cities. They rely on local people donating food, and also support school breakfast clubs. 

Joining Randhir at the unveiling today was Dawn Megginson, Area Director for TSB West Midlands who said: "Randhir deserves to be acknowledged in this way as the winner of the TSB Community Award and hopefully others will be inspired to help their local community when they see this artwork.”

Randhir was also presented with a cheque from TSB for £10,000 for his charity to help him to purchase a bus to help more people in his community. 

Do you know someone or a group of people who have displayed remarkable courage through adversity, helped others improve their lives or made a difference to your community by their everyday actions of kindness and selflessness? If so, please nominate them for the TSB Community Partner Award, by August 25th 2017 so we can help TSB to recognise their contribution to their local area.

TSB's Local Charities Partnership programme empowers its branches and offices to support locally chosen independent causes through fundraising and volunteering and has already raised more than £1 million for over 900 local charities. We are delighted to partner with them again this year to find incredible local people working together to make communities better for everyone. 

Randhir is an incredible man who deserves this honour. We are thrilled that his portrait now sits proudly in his home town for everyone to see. 

It couldn't be simpler to nominate someone. You can either submit a nomination online at www.prideofbritain.com or pop into your local TSB branch and nominate there.
