Sikhs that fed stranded truckers are now helping flood victims to fill 1,000 sandbags. Storm Bella has left many people devastated as a lot of properties got damaged.
The Sikhs fed stranded truckers in Kent a few days before Christmas. These people distributed about 1,500 bowls of Curry and 1,000 pizzas to truck drivers.
However, after a few hours of distributing food, they received a call from flood-ravaged Bedfordshire. They immediately set off to help the people around there.
They started filling and distributing 1,000 sandbags by the end of the day. Sikhs are known to be very generous. After these people volunteered to help stranded truck drivers, they never got tired of doing well.
A senior volunteer, Indy Narwal, maintained that distributing hot meals during a period where everyone was stranded was a lovely thing to do. They started distributing food from December 12 till December 24.
However, after a few hours they got home they started preparing for their next mission. A team of volunteers had started filling up about 1,000 sandbags the following day. They filed sandbags till 8 pm and distributed them that same night.
Over 1,500 truckers waiting to leave the UK were caught up in gridlock limbo after France closed its border as a result of the rise in Coronavirus cases and a new strain in England. Some drivers look for places to sleep while others stayed back in their vehicles hoping to get home soon.
The drivers had to undergo Covid-19 tests in a bid to clear the highway. Those that tested negative were allowed to cross the border.
