TESTIMONIAL




Sarita Chopra

Most people don't have the time to write letters of a complimentary nature, I am one of these people. However, I felt compelled to do just that with regards to the services of Brent Punjabi Associations.
Last year, I noticed my mum, Sharda Klare gradually withdrawing from society and her health slowly declining. I guess she probably hit a turning point in her life. A widow for 16 years at a very young the age of 48, it must have dawned on her, that her children had all grown up and had left the nest and that her grandchildren were becoming busy in their teenage lives etc. Without knowing it, along the way, she had lost her sense of purpose and direction.
I realized that my mum needed some other source of independent outlet besides family life. I couldn’t find anything locally that suited her. Unfortunately, there’s not much out there for old school, family oriented, asian ladies who find themselves single for whatever reasons, that have no social life which is independent from the family.
By chance, I was flicking through the asian chanels and came across Brent Punjabi Associations promoting their service. It was perfect, I enrolled my mum immediately!

• Her confidence and self-esteem has returned.
• She has become more adventurous and outgoing, Her concentration, communication, focus and co-ordination levels have improved,
• She’s become independent and found a new sense of purpose and direction.


So thank you, Joginder Kundhi and BPA for the service you provide in the community and most of all, in helping to bring the sparkle, joy and smile back to my mum’s life.

I have learnt to dance and to do Yoga exercises. Read More...

Other activities include Yoga, bingo, karaoke, singing and occasionally musical chairs! I have also learnt new things from the guest speakers who attend, such as the Community Police, the Mayor and make-up artists. Read More...
